*** Update - Kabul Market has closed.
For dinner last night we dropped by another place on our regular rotation; Kabul Market.
Within the market is the House of Kabob a nice little gem on Convoy St. in the Clairemont Mesa area. Here you'll find some very tasty and reasonably priced Afghan food. In all honesty, I have no idea what Afghan food is. But I can truly say the food here is tasty. Today we had the Chapli Kabob (below) and the Chicken Kabob plate.
From what I can tell Chapli is basically (local standards) a Afghan Hamburger Steak very liberally flavored with various herbs and spices. It served with a green salad with a very tangy and tasty yogurt (again I'm guessing) dressing, rice pilaf seasoned with Sumac, Afghan Bread (Naan??), and a Chatni. All for $5.99!!!! Now I had no idea what Sumac is but here's a good description of it, we now have it at home it's an excellent additions to dressings, but like furikake' also really good on a nice bowl of rice! (Sorry, but I'm ready to "bust-out" the Chaw-wan at the earliest sign of starch!)
The Chicken Kabob is also really good, and today it was in fine form! Soooo tasty, spicy, a little tangy, a little herbaceous.
Now service may be a little slow, but this is a Mom and Pop operation. So place your order, and shop around the market. All meat are prepared in accordance with The House of Halal, and there are many pastries, herbs, and other provisions available.
