Herat Restaurant, Kabul

February 23, 2012 in Kabul Journals | Comments (1)



The Herat Restaurant is one of Kabul’s most popular. It is in the Shar-e-Naw ((New Town) section of the city, a busy commercial area.














The door opens into the ‘public’ (i.e. mens’) section:













The ‘family section’ (where women are allowed) is tucked away at the back:















The servers hurry between both sections, carrying platters of freshly made naans.

















The menu is uncomplicated and serves also as a bill:








The meal begins with shorba (soup):











and is followed by seekh kababs










and murgh (chicken) kababs.



















All of this is accompanied by naans and the Herat Restaurant’s homemade yoghurt, which is possibly the best in the world.








And afterwards there are delicious dried fruits on offer at a stall outside.
