The wife and I went to *Helmand* last night and, I'm here to report that everything was truly wonderful.
I also wanted to thank the board for suggestions and encouragement to try this place.
About the food,
After all the hype on this board about the *Helmand* pumpkin appetizer (Kaddo), I was truly expecting some degree of "let down."
No such thing happened.
The pumpkin at *Heland* is so delicious, my wife was practically in tears.
The entrees we ordered were a Spinach & Lamb dish, which was warm, tender, and delicious.... and....
the "Kofta Kabob" which is a generous serving of the tastiest ground beef imaginable!
The food (and wine) prices are very reasonable and the ambiance is very comfortable.
We had a wonderful time and look forward to going back.
Thanks again for the tips !
There is an article about *Helmand* and its two owners in the current 'North Beach' neighborhood paper.
Coincidentally, we were on our way to the restaurant (walking) when we just happened upon the article (front page).
