BBQ Corn - Vali Asr

On a quiet weekday evening there isn't really much going on in the streets of Tehran. Not even on the main strip - Vali-e Asr Street.

Barbequed corn on Vali Asr

But this guy was gamely fanning the flames of his makeshift barbecue and wooing passers-by with the prospect of chargrilled sweetcorn. I'd never had it over coals before, and I still prefer it boiled but it's a fun treat nonetheless especially on a cold autumn evening when you can gather around the hot coals and make small talk with other stray folk.
