Interesting story yesterday. I went to a Persian restaurant for dinner and when looking at the menu, which was quite baffling, I actually saw a word that I recognized which was the second Ethnic Food Word I posted to my blog. I knew what aash-e reshteh meant! Yaaay!
acar / ah-char'/ [Indonesian] vegetables or fruits preserved with vinegar, for example pickles.
