MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Fans of Afghan cuisine flock from miles around to this homestyle spot in San Carlos, tucked away in a deceptively large space within a modest shopping plaza. Kabul’s walls are festooned with deep red tapestries and other Afghan embroidery, and even on weekday nights it fills up with local families. There’s even a semi-private side dining room for big groups. The friendly staff is happy to suggest favorite dishes, from smoky chicken and lamb kebabs over spiced basmati rice to sweet, fork-tender sautéed pumpkin served with garlicky yogurt sauce and fluffy flatbread. And though everything comes in generous portions, you'll want to save room for the firnee, a sweet milk pudding flavored with cardamom and rosewater and topped with pistachios.
