Kliman reviews Zuhair's Cafe in Herndon, which claims to be the area's only Iraqi restaurant.
Pam: If you're able to get out there, please let us know if it holds a candle to the real thing. (Oh, and welcome back!)
Meanwhile, in the Sunday post, Sietsema reviews Kabab Combo, the new full-service restaurant run by the owners of Kabob Palace. http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-...
One of these days, we really ought to have a Chowhound kabob fest, in which we taste and compare the various Persian/Pakistani/Afghan/Iraqi offerings at, e.g., Ravi Kabob, Kabob Baazar, Moby Dick (several locations), Kabob Palace/Combo, Zuhair's, Shamshiry, Amoo's, Paradise, Food Factory, etc.
(I suppose we'll have to set aside quite a good stretch of time, and fill up our (gas) tanks, to pull it off, eh?)
