At the inexpensive, high-quality “new Persian” fast-casual spot Grills & Greens in Rancho Cordova, nearly everything is made in-house, including a borani yogurt dip loaded with blanched spinach, kale and chard that alternates cream and crunch. For $9.99, patrons can take away a holiday-party-perfect 16-ounce container of the borani dip and two big pieces of pita bread. Or they can get the equally fresh eggplant-and-grilled-onion dip, which also comes with bread.
