Tweaked Posted July 10, 2006 Share Posted July 10, 2006 I have walked past The Afghan Grill many times and given its location, next to a Philly sub shop and manicure place, I always thought it was your typical mom and pop divey kabob joint. It is far from that! Handsomely dressed with Afghan artifacts, the restaurant works well as a date place, parent place, or catching up with friends place...at very reasonable prices.dinner starts with a basket of sesame topped flat breads, not really naan nor pita, but toasted and tasty with a spicy green dipping sauce, heavy with chilies and mint. we started with an order of the bulanne, a leek stuffed turnover, nothing spectacular, but nicely fried with a thick yogurt dipping sauce. I went with a lamb kabob that obviously had been marinanting for hours and cooked perfectly medium rare...delicious. It came with your standard scattering of charred tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions and rice topped with dollop of pureed spinach. Get some extra green dipping sauce that comes with the bread, it's well worth it for mixing in with the kabobs and rice!My only complaints: Many hard surfaces makes for a loud room and the tiny AC unit couldn't keep up... Overall, a nice little restaurant, well worth a visit if you are in the area.Picture isn't the best but... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
