It’s impossible to breeze past Persepolis without at least a second glance. The canary-yellow facade frames large windows that peek into a topsy-turvy world decorated with Middle Eastern string instruments; cans of food adorned in Arabic; hookahs; spices and other miscellanea. This cafe-cum-deli is like a psychedelic shouk, an Peckham OG that’s long been serving the community with hard-to-find ingredients and veg-based Persian cooking. Opened in 1999 by Sally Butcher - whose wild cloud of red hair is instantly recognisable to any Peckhamite - Persepolis evolved from a shop to a DIY restaurant. Bring your own booze and hunker down for a vegetarian feast, letting Sally feed you course upon course of Middle Eastern delights - all changed daily based on Sally’s whim. Caution: loose trousers are a must.
