Opening alert: Caspian Restaurant in Mountain ViewUploaded: Dec 5, 2018
A Mediterranean restaurant has replaced Kabobs & Pupuseria on El Camino Real in Mountain View.
Brian Jafari opened Caspian Restaurant at 1910 W. El Camino Real, Suite D in mid-November.
A native of Iran who came to the United State about 25 years ago, Jafari said his restaurant focuses on kebabs but also serves hummus, falafel, gyros and salads. Caspian serves 12 kinds of kebab, including beef, lamb, filet mignon, chicken, salmon and vegetables. Jafari said they "try to use the best product" and grind all the meat in house.
For dessert, there's baklava, Persian ice cream with pistachios and faloodeh, a traditional Iranian frozen dessert made from rice noodles.
Jafari lives in San Jose and said he has run different restaurants there for close to 20 years.
Caspian is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. except on Sundays, when the restaurant closes at 3:30 p.m.
