It was super sunny and humid like it has been this entire summer. It wasn’t the heat that made me hungry, it was catching Pokemons in the humid weather. I use to judge people that downloaded the app, but guess what? I am one of them now. Muhahahaha. But, back to the topic where I was starting to feel hungry (aren’t I always?). Well, I stumbled (actually searched on Yelp) that there was a place nearby (Kandahar Kabab) and the pictures enticed me. The Kandahar restaurant had high ceilings and a non-traditional restaurant set-up. You simply order your food at the counter and find a seat yourself, but the seating area is arranged like it is at a restaurant. I really enjoy this combination because it takes all the fuss out of going to a traditional restaurant. After studying the Kandahar Kabab’s restaurant menu, I ended up ordering Veggie Mantoo (which I never had before) and Sultani Kabab. This is a great place to bring your friends since the meat they use is halal.
The first thing I noticed was the huge portions that the restaurant had provided. It could be easily shared by two people. The halal meat was super tender and I know this because I just kept shoving them in my mouth.
I also had the pleasure of trying out afghan mantoo! I found the shape and the name so interesting because it was so similar to Chinese dumplings and Korean mandu. Overall, I had a delicious meal and would recommend this place to try!
