    Full-service Afghan restaurant in San Carlos, Sunnyvale and Burlingame.

    These friendly folks sell tasty bolani with spreads and sauces at farmer's markets all over Northern California and at selected Whole Foods markets. We are especially fond of the cilantro pesto and garlic mint cheese.
  • de Afghanan Kabob House
    Though a tiny, hole in the wall joint along the "little Kabul" strip of Fremont, CA, it is highly atmospheric with the purveyors grilling savory kebabs and hand making bolani as you wait for your food.

Dear Humeira,
several years ago we dropped into a small afghan restaurant in Hamburg.All guests were afghans, we were the only germans.They had no menue card but a wonderful buffet with beautiful dishes.We loved
the athmosphere, the food and had a wonderful
evening.
At our next stay in Hamburg we spent another
evening there.It was not half as good and the
owner told us, that at our first visit the professional cook just left and his mother, who
was on a visit from Afghanistan did the cooking.
We were too shy to ask for the recipe of a cardamom pudding, we liked most.Now I found the
recipe on your page, prepared it for the friends who were with us in Hamburg and it was the first recipe that could give an idea on what we enjoyed that evening. Thanks for that and I´m
looking forward to prepare more dishes on your
recipes.
