Afghan Tandoor

There's a small Afghan place nestled between Cold Stone and Quiznos.  A few weeks ago Destree and I decided to check out their food.  I've been interested in trying them for a while now.  Now that we have, I can't wait to go back.

We split two dishes: chicken kabob and a mix of chicken and lamb curry.  Each came with naan, saffron rice, and a salad.  We were a little cautious getting everything because Destree is allergic to anything spicy.  If it passes her threshold, then her tongue breaks out in a rash.  I didn't think the chicken was spicy at all, but her tongue apparently did.  Everything was amazing, especially the green sauce that they give you to go on the rice.  It's spicy, but so much more.

What really stepped this place up to the next level was its service.  Neither of us had ever eaten Afghan food before. Occasionally, I will have Pakistani and Indian food, but I'm not familiar enough with most of it to order.  We told that to the guy behind the register (along with the "no spicy" rule), and we had him order for us.  He did a great job.  He wasn't irritated, in fact he seemed jovial about getting to order food to us.

The food was great and warrants a few return trips to try their gyros, Persian burger, and cheese steak sandwich, but it's their service that will keep us coming back again and again.
