De Afghanan from Fremont - now in San Francisco and Berkeley

hippopotamus | Dec 7, 2007 11:15 PM

In one of the best pieces of food news I have heard in recent years, I recently learnt that the De Afghanan true-hole-in-the-wall place in Fremont has opened a new location in San Francisco (13xx Polk street). I happened to discover it as I was driving by.
I stepped in and spoke to the gentleman managing the place and he's told me that he expects yet another location to open in Berkeley next week. (Super! Super! Super!)
The Berkeley location would be near the intersection of San Pablo and University (near the Pakistani-Indian restaurant Kabana)
Moreover, the restaurant has a menu that's almost twice as long as the original Fremont location.
Anybody up for a chowhound lunch at the Berkeley location? (assuming it does open next week, as it was suggested)?

For those who are not familiar with De Afghanan ----
As the name suggests its an Afghan food place. It happens to be, IMO, the best lamb and chicken kabobs I have ever come across. Its more famous however, for its beef kabobs called Chapli Kabobs. They also carry a turnover filled with potato and spices and served with curd, called Bhulani. (resemble the Indian Aloo Paratha).
If you like kabobs, I believe this place is a must-try.
