Kabul Afghan Restaurant

Last night I went to Kabul Afghan Restaurant for dinner. I've never had afghan food, so we weren't quite sure what to expect. It was fabulous! Very similar to Meditteranean, I thought.
We didn't realize that they were BYO, so we just had water with our meals. I'll have to remember to bring a bottle next time!
We started with a sampling of 4 appetizers (10.50). The grape leaves were perfect, the Bulanee Kachaloo (turnovers stuffed with spiced mashed potatoes and chopped onions) was okay, the Sambosa Goushti (fried pockets stuffed with ground beef, chick peas and spices) was delicious, and the Aashak....oh that aashak....they're scallion filled dumplings, similar to ravioli, topped with a yogurt sauce, lentils, and corn. Unbelievable.
We each got a lamb dish at $12.75 each. The lamb is braised and so tender that you can cut it with your fork. Mine was served with eggplant, tomatoes, and onions and was just a tad bit spicy. Yum! My roommate got hers with spinach. It had a very heavy spice that I can't quite put my finger on and was delicous! Our meals came with rice, bread, and a side salad. The bread was good, but the salads were small and slathered in dressing. My meal's only downfall.
All in all the place was fantastic. The staff was so friendly and willing to answer any questions we had. I would definitely go back again!
