A new Afghan restaurant opened in town.....interesting good food. I went with a couple of food writers, one writing an article on Afghan food.....there is not alot of cookbooks available on the subject. Interesting trying to decipher the spice combinations. Alot of Indian influence...the bread is similar to naan, but the combos were really new..... 3" large fresh pasta filled with meat, topped with yogurt then yellow peas and carrots...exceptional, trully memorable. The kind of dish you think when can I go try it again. kabobs, great basmati...the owner of the restaurant Sameem said he spends $32 for a bag of basmati....the grains were not broken nor mushy.... cilantro, cinnamon, cumin, some chili (not sure which)....alot of potato/onion aps, egggplant/tomato/potato with cheese ap, Aash that was discribed by another foodie as mid eastern chili mac. No pork but there was shrimp on the menu. Chickpeas were abundant especially in rice. Have any of you explored Afghan food? what do you know?
