The fast-casual Afghanistan restaurant is known for their variety of grilled meat. This includes kabobs, skewers, tandoori chicken, lamb chops and more. You can also order them as platters, each one accompanied with rice and salad. The restaurant has also gone one step ahead and launched new home-style Afghan dishes for their menu.
They’ve highlighted dishes like Daal Nakhool Plate (split peas stew cooked with ground beef), Aushak (vegetarian dumplings) and Subzi Palo (a spinach dish served with Qabli rice). Each item draws inspiration from the rich flavours and style of Afghan cuisine that is near and dear to so many.
It’s also not a surprise that many of us have taken to more cooking during these lockdowns. In that spirit, Naan and Kabob is also offering the recipes for its new dishes upon request. In addition, the restaurant currently has a Ramadan Feast deal available, priced at $90, which serves four-five people. Orders can be placed online through their site or any of the delivery platforms. You don’t want to miss a chance to try traditional Afghan food in Toronto!
