THE NAME PROJECT
CHECK OUT VICTORIA BC EVENT S FOR JANUARY & FEBRUARY 2018!
When Megan Bermand starts talking about Persian food, her sparkling green eyes somehow shine even brighter. Owner of the newly-opened Tulip Café & Rice Bar on Blanshard Street, Megan is passionate about bringing the fresh, flavourful food of her home country, Iran, and of the many places along her travels—twenty- two countries and counting—to downtown Victoria’s vibrant restaurant scene.
Originally from Shiraz, Iran, Megan, whose full Persian name is Mojgan Bahremandjooy, believes that fresh herbs, spices, rice, and vegetables should anchor the menu. These are cornerstones of the Persian made-from-scratch tradition.
