Assad was born in Iran in 1964. From his young years he tried to learn the best recepie within his family members, from his aunts, uncles, mother and grandmother. Every time there was a party at the house, Assad was in charge of the kitchen. From appetizers to meals to desserts and everything in between.
He was so much in love with Persian cuisine that he started experimenting on the main dishes to get the best taste possible. Adding a little here, taking some out of there. Just to get the right taste for his guests. This eventually led Assad to have his own signature on his dishes. Everybody would know that is Assad's recepie.
Assad lived in mediteranian countries for 6 years before moving to Canada in 2006 with his two sons and his former wife. He moved in with only $5000 for his own and his whole family. This was their whole life time savings. From day 1 of his arrival into Canada his only dream was to establish his own restaurant. But it took him almost 12 years to save up and do it today. This is Saffron Meals Restaurant. With a very proud owner and a lot of backbone. Assad is a passionate man. Hardworking and well organized. He is very happy to serve you with his tasty Persian dishes. Customers need to leave my restaurant with a smile. Assad says. The art of making good food is most important aspect of owning a restaurant.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts.
