For citizens of the "Great Satan," it's a bad time to book an Iranian vacation, what with mass protests, Israel's itchy trigger finger and President Ahmadinejad's vague threats. Luckily, authentic Iranian cuisine resides much closer and in a slightly less hostile environment: Beaverton Town Square. Kabob House mingles with Izzy's Pizza and Supercuts, but don't judge it by the company it keeps. Each meal starts when the gruff and furry proprietor delivers complimentary flatbread served with onion, basil and butter. But don't fill up on this oddly delicious combo; move on to tahdig: crisp, golden rice scraped from the bottom of the pot and smothered in the stew of your choice. And then, of course, a namesake kebab—chicken, filet mignon or vegetarian.
