It took Herman Melville chapters to get to the part in his classic "Moby Dick" when the massive sperm whale and the peg-legged Captain Ahab finally do battle. No spoiler here: Moby Dick wins, smashing his enormous head into Ahab's ship, the Pequod, and sinking it. But it took years for an international team of scientists to finally probe this burning question: Would a sperm whale actually use its massive noggin as a battering ram to down a whaling ship five times the animal's size?
Moby Dick's lunch specials a different Persian homestyle dish each day, M-F are some of the best values in the city. This is the real deal, and I've talked with several Persian people who adore it and treasure it as authentic. I've never been to the one in Bethesda, as I usually frequent the one in McLean anyone going there will know the gregarious and friendly proprietor, Muhammad. Don't expect a kabob with these; you'll get interesting combinations like lamb or chicken with dill, braised beef with yellow lentils and a tomato-onion base, other interesting meats served with zest or pomegranate, all served up with must-o-keyar a cucumber-y yogurt and the eponymous oven-baked bread.
This is one of my standard "go-to" kebab places. Consistently delicious and affordable. Great service, freshly grilled Kebab meat.
