The air is filled with spices, the dining experience is memorable and the cost is low. Add the antique Afghan musical instruments, throw pillows and oriental rugs, and you have a truly exotic destination. Vegetable soup with noodles and yogurt, scallion dumplings with yogurt-mint sauce, and pumpkin-filled turnovers are popular appetizers. Try entrées like quorma sabz (pieces of lamb and scallions sautéed with spinach and coriander), or chopped beef patties with basmati rice and lots of hot spices.
