Picture of Persepolis, SE15 5DT

Historical version 14 of Persepolis, SE15 5DT (view current version)

Persian food shop on Peckham High Street.

It sells grains (including millet, whole barley, and wholewheat couscous), dried beans, dried fruit, dried herbs, spices (including juniper berries and sumac), preserved lemons, dried limes, pomegranate molasses, and various kinds of baklava. Loads of interesting and unusual stuff.

They have a jar bank and a carrier bag bank (see their website for more details).

Sally Butcher, co-owner of the shop, has written a Persian recipe book, Persia in Peckham, and a vegetarian Middle Eastern cookbook, Veggiestan.

itsbruce's verdict: Love this place. Worth a trip out of the way to visit.
