In the Persian Empire, people would pour syrups over snow called “fruit ice” (sorbet). The Greek Alexander the Great, who battled the Persians for 10 years, enjoyed fruit “ices” sweetened with honey and chilled with snow. In 400 BC, the Persians went further and invented a special chilled food, made of rose water and vermicelli, which was served during hot summers and is considered as the origin of the Iranian cold dessert, Faloodeh (Persianفالوده‎).


So come to Yasaman today and enjoy a delicious bowl of Persian ice-cream.
