Even if you don’t know the Mohebati family, you still might know their food: Bita Farid-Mohebati and her husband Fariborz are the faces behind popular Persian joint Rumi, and their 7-year-old daughter Nadia Sasha Mohebati is the inspiration for its family-friendly touches like a kids’ menu and high chairs. The family, who hail from Iran and the US, have been in Beijing a year and eight months now, and say that’s long enough for it to feel like home. Here are some of the Mohebati’s Beijing favorites.
