Afghani Food

This place has been around for more than a decade, though it has changed locations a couple of times. Currently the space is cheery and bright with yellow walls and high ceilings, ornate rugs, and colorful dresses hanging on the walls. They have three vegetarian entrees (mung beans and rice, a spinach and lentil dish, and a vegetarian combo plate) and several vegetarian appetizers including dahl, hummos, and shola.

When I discovered this place, it was like a dream come true. Not only is virtually every dish gluten free, but they have a very respectable veggie-to-non-veggie ratio on their menu. The daal is exceptional, especially when paired with their hand-crafted, secret recipe cilantro/walnut chutney; but I really enjoyed every vegetarian dish they offered. What's more, the staff are extremely friendly and willing to remove any dairy from vegetarian dishes, if you are vegan like myself; one of my favorites is their weekend special, the Kadu, which is butternut squash in a sweet and faintly cinnammon-like curry. It comes with a yogurt sauce on top but this can easily be held off.
This place is a little known gem, and I cannot recommend it enough.

My first time at Khyber pass and with Afghani food was just a few days ago. I ordered a combination platter with 3 types of vegetable dishes all served on basmati rice. The food was interesting and tasted okay. However, I thought the food would have more flavor to it.

I have been told at lunchtime they have a buffet that includes vegan options which is great to see. I'm likely to try this place again.
