Afghan in Woodside

Following the EGG, we dined at Speengar on Friday
night. Our shared dinner was Aukush (scallion ravioli
with yogurt; I might be spelling it wrong), Narienge
Palaw (pilaf with saffron and orange peel and
pistachios), and grilled lamb kebab that came with the
pilaf. Also I drank salty Dough, a yogurt-based drink.

Everything was very good; the rice was plump and moist,
but the lamb was slightly overcooked and dry. The mix
of flavors in the pilaf was wonderful.
