Mohammad Riahi, a part time restaurant manager and taxi driver eats breakfast with his family at their home in the city of Yazd, Iran. (Mohammad Riahi is one of the people interviewed for the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) He lives with his father and mother, and will until he marries. Even then, he and his bride will be offered the second floor of his parent's home. At the restaurant he eats whatever he feels like eating. At home though, he eats what his mother puts on the tablecloth on the floor in the middle of their living room. Many of their meals are vegetable and starch-based although they have lamb or chicken occasionally, and sheep's head soup on the weekend. As Muslims, they never eat pork.
