So my friends and I are on a mission to try out ethnic food every week, and it happened to be Afghan food this week. To be honest, I'm not extremely familiar with middle eastern food (unless you count food trucks in NYC) but hey it was pretty good.
Mantu - Reminded me a lot of Chinese dumplings except that they are filled with lamb instead of pork. I enjoyed this quite a bit. Thumbs up!
Sambosa - Reminds me alot of samosa. Even the name sounds similar? Ok.
Kabul's combination kebab - I ordered the beef and chicken (since everyone else on my table was having a lamb dish). The chicken was super tender and tasty. Loved it. The beef however, was way too tough (despite it being medium) and it made my jaw ache just from chewing it :( Boo. Would recommend this, but maybe get the lamb instead of beef!
Badenjan Challaw, Sabsi Challaw, Mater Challaw - Basically all three dishes are chunks of lamb cooked with eggplant, fresh spinach and sweet green peas respectively. The lamb meat for all 3 were super tender and soft and the dish reminded me a lot like lamb stew, but with different vegetables. Of the three, I enjoyed the spinach one best.
Baklava - A little too sweet
Goush-e-feel - The menu said "fried pastry in the shape of elephant's ear" so we got curious and wanted to see what it looked like. We were surprised to find that it was a pretty large dessert (well, Elephant's ear so we probably should have guessed). I liked this quite a bit with the sugar dusting, but wish the pastry was a little crispier.
Overall, food was pretty good and service was great.
