Ghar-E-Kabab in downtown Silver Spring

dan f. | Jan 24, 200810:45 AM

This is an interesting addition to the downtown SS eating scene, notable because it is NOT a chain. (Locally owned, one of the partners actually is from Nepal.) It's on Wayne Av. across from one of the major parking garages for the new downtown complex. It's Indian-Nepalese, open for business since this past Tuesday night. Lots of rough edges as you might expect, but promising nonetheless. We asked for one of the Nepalese appetizers, Momo (described as turkey, chicken or veg dumpling w/ Nepalese sauce), but they didn't have it. We settled for Gundruk, a Nepalese broth with dried vegetabgles and mystery peanut-like nuts (beans?) that evidently warms people up at high altitudes. Also had more traditional Indian chicken kabab and lamb curry, plus very flavorful naan. We paid with a debit card and they couldn't get the receipt to roll out of the swiper machine properly, so we signed a sketchy, torn-in-half slip & left a cash tip. (Appears to have traveled thru our bank account without incident.) All in all not quite up to Heritage India or Rasika maybe, but a good start, certainly worth going to if you're looking for something different in Silver Spring. Would be interested to hear comments of anyone else who goes to Ghar-E-Kabab.
