Grill Hut is a Persian restaurant in Laguna Hills. Get triangles of toasted pita bread to scoop through a canister of mast-o-khiar, a yogurt-cucumber-mint dip that freshens every pore of your being. Get a steaming dome of basmati rice that arrives within minutes. The rice accompanied one of the greatest steak kebabs ever—glistening, medium-rare chunks ripped apart with effortless nibbles. The Latino cooks in the kitchen judiciously punctuated the meat with grilled onions, bell peppers and tomatoes; each lent different notes of vegetable charm.
