Hamam-e Vakil Chaykhaneh: Teahouse in a Historic Hammam
Yet another re-purposed historic bathhouse. One descends steps from Bazar e Ektiari to enter the space, resplendent with elegant arches and high vaulted ceilings. One first walks through the teahouse, where guys can be spied communing over hookahs, through to the restaurant where tables can be chosen over daybeds.
There is also traditional music on offer, particularly if a tour group is in attendance. When we visited, the teahouse was pretty empty, with detracted form the atmosphere. Notwithstanding the lack of crowds, this is the most atmospheric dining option in Kerman. Note - lunch time only.
Favorite Dish: We tried eggplant dip, and a dizi. The eggplant dip was tasty, whilst the dizi (or abgoosht) the eating of which improves with practice.

No idea: Kebab Kerman
I was walking all day so tired in Kerman and saw this kebab restaurant near Tohid Square. I ordered without asking for price. I had 4 kebab and bread with drink for IR25,000 (May 2008).
