Afghan Restaurant

In the effort to try someplace different, we went to try the kabobs at Afghan Restaurant on Jefferson Davis Highway. We started off with some dumplings. This generated a discussion of the variety of dumplings in different cuisines around the world, from the pelmeni and pierogi, to the manti, gyoza, har gao and mandu.
Beef-filled dumplings.
Vegetable-filled dumplings in a yogurt sauce.
Both types of dumpling were very good, and I really liked the tangy yogurt sauces.
 My boyfriend tried out the combination platter with the spiced rice, white rice, carrots, beef sauce, and two kabobs.
I ordered the chicken kabob with an extra skewer of vegetables. 
The Afghan bread was a great flavor and texture, and perfect for soaking up the juices. The chicken was juicy and cooked extremely well. Possibly the best kabob I've had in quite a few years.
