The best Persian food in NYC is hidden in a pizza shop

Hidden away in a corner of a pizza shop, Taste of Persia NYC serves traditional Persian dishes to its customers from a counter at the front window. Owner Saeed Pourkay started the restaurant with the help of his neighbors after becoming homeless. Pourkay's meaty dishes require seven to eight hours of simmering and cooking. Customers of Taste of Persia NYC order at a counter at the front window. INSIDER producer Medha Imam visits the restaurant to try out the traditional cuisine, gets a behind-the-scenes look into the restaurant, and asks Pourkay, “Why a pizza shop?”
