Afghan food is the perfect way to warm up body and soul. With lots of savory spices, this cuisine is at the crossroads between India and Turkey. The scents of cardamom, cumin and coriander add an exotic touch, yet are subtle enough for those who don’t care for the strong taste of South Asian dishes.
But in the end, the added warmth comes from the personal touch: the owner will gladly tell you about his country – stories you don’t get on CNN. Plus, the wool carpets hanging on the walls add to the cozy ambiance. A perfect escape from a rainy day.
