Ever since Babur Garden closed in Ocean, there aren’t many options for Afghan cuisine. One restaurant is Silk Road in Warren and now this one.
Driving past Cranford, I noticed “Famous Kabab Cuisine” in a plaza in Westfield.
I was told they’re most known for their kababs, but I went with:
Dough - a mint yogurt drink with cucumber pieces
Aash - a noodle soup with (frozen vegetables), spices, mint, and yogurt. Good soup, better when experimenting with the green and red chutneys, and yogurt on the side.
Qabli Pulao - Afghanistan national dish, rice with carrots and raisins. (Very good)
Aloo bolani, a thin crepe/pierogi filled with pumpkin was a star appetizer. (Fantastic)
Mantoo - steamed soup dumplings with minced meat, topped with yogurt and stewed chickpeas. (Were a little bit too firm for me).
All in all it was pretty good, not amazing, although I mostly selected appetizers and sides.
I would surely return to try additional items, like their selection of curries with some tandoori naan, as well as some of their kababs (looking at their lamb).
