Traditional live music and other entertainment (on request) celebrates Kurdish culture close to home
“[Nîroj] cooking has influences from across the [Middle Eastern] region — and from California, if you include the mesclun-based salads, the salmon with white wine and the calzone-like pide — flatbreads folded over fillings of spinach and feta, mushrooms or a pepperoni-pizza-like mix of sujuk sausage and cheese.”
CGTN America’s show “Full Frame” details Luqman Barwari’s mission to keep Kurdish culture alive in America. The region known as Kurdistan is split across four separate countries and as a result, the Kurdish people have no embassy. Luqman Barwari founded Niroj to provide a place for the history and food of his people to be honored. Live music often fills the space; both traditional Kurdish folk music and original songs about the modern struggle Kurdish people face. Luqman is proud to have his restaurant stand as an unofficial embassy and a place to inform about the rich Kurdish history.
