Fine Afghanistan Cuisine

The Helmand has a great selection of vegetarian menu items (many of which can be made vegan). The waiters are very knowledgeable about which foods can be made vegan (generally this just involves skipping on the yogurt sauce that seems to be served on everything).

The menu boasts lots of great dishes made with squash, pumpkin, chick peas and other cooked vegetables. The website does not accurately portray the variety of vegetarian options at the Helmand.

The Helmand is one of the few upscale restaurants in Baltimore that caters to vegetarians and vegans. It's worth visiting just to admire the art from Afghanistan that adorns the walls.

The Helmand is located within blocks of Peabody, the Lyric Opera, the Meyerhoff Symphony Orchestra and numerous theaters. It's a great place to dine before/after a show. The food is delicious and most of the vegetarian items can be made dairy-free if you ask. There is a vegetarian stuffed pepper dish that I would highly recommend.
