Around the corner from Spicy Leaves, Panini’s proprietor Dinyar Anklesaria has an exciting sideline to his main business of providing sandwiches for the lunchers of Los Altos. Anklesaria, Indian born and of the Parsi minority, cooks some Parsi classic dishes on Saturdays for those who know enough to request them.
His dhansak, a chicken or lamb stew with four kinds of lentils, vegetables and spices, harkens back to his ancestors’ Persian origins. Request the dhansak, a kebab or his oven-baked halibut, wrapped with mint in a banana leaf for a delicious change. Call ahead to make sure he’s cooking the week you want to try a dish, at 941-7616.
Panini’s is located in the Village Court shopping Center, 4546 El Camino Real.
