Asia Bakery in Mississauga (Afghani)

Went recently to Asia Bakery in Mississauga to get our usual order of Afghani bread when we noticed they expanded to the shop beside it and are now selling pizza and bolani as well!

Bolani is a traditional Afghani filled flat-bread stuffed with spinach, pumpkin, potato, or leeks. As I'm married to an Afghani, I've had homemade ones made by my MIL.

We haven't tried it yet but will report back once I do. We've had it from other places like Bamiyan Kabob and there's a place in Pickering too (don't know the name as my SIL always orders takeout from there when we visit her) but they don't put enough filling in them. The one in Pickering provides a kick-ass chutney on the side though! :) I can get the name of the place if anyone is interested.

Just a side note on the Afghani bread, very cheap and tasty. We order a lot and freeze it, stays fresher that way.
