Kabul City Report

A few hounds took up last week's offer to check out the lunch buffet at the new Afghan restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf (off all places...). Well, first, NO LUNCH BUFFET! It has changed to "lunch specials" which are essentially smaller portions of the dinner menu. I swear I will type up the menu when I get a chance. The incredibly nice owner said they tried the buffet but it didn't work because the item most people were interested in were the kabobs and kabobs dry out after about 20 minutes. Le sigh!

So here's what we had:

Appetizer sized portions of Kadu Burani (pumpkin) and Badinjon Burani (eggplant). Chow Fun asked if we could get smaller sizes as these were entrees (someone please teach how to do the control stroke right for accent, I am so lame, and yes I have looked in Word) and the nice man said yes. Can't remember the charge for that...

All lunch items are $6.99. You can't have the lamp chops or the big platter o' kabobs (spelling from menu) but everything else is open season.

-Tekka Kabob (lamb)
-Mantu (think Afghan ravioli in yogurt sauce)
-Qabely Pallow

Total bill with a very generous tip was $40 for 3 (no drinks). The other 2 can comment, will add more later.
