Cool beans. I had my first taste of Afghan cuisine in The Bay as well at a resto called The Helmand. It was located in a seedy part of town with lots of strip clubs, but the food was out of sight.

FYI: Fremont is also home to M.C. Hammer.


never fails. your blog always makes me hungry. even when i just ate.

glad you enjoyed your afghan experience.

Gastronomer- Why is it that the weird seedy parts of town so often have such good food? If I would have known M.C. Hammer was there, that might have changed our whole trip.

Krista- I advise eating more. I know it seems counterintuitive, but it's good for you.


Drooling. I have to find a bolani recipe now - did you pick up any familiar spicing? We get fab aloo masala paratha here in S'pore. Great post and pics!

Ditto Ling - man, that bolani looks good. I found myself not too crazy over the bread. It seemed like it just needed a touch of seasoning when I had it. (You know, that one time)

Logan @ Boots in the Oven

Ling- It was pretty basic. Strong potato and green onion flavor, a little garlic, cumin and coriander maybe. The cilantro chutney and spicy sauce paired with the yogurt really made the dish though.

Hey Albany Jane- without any side sauces or accoutrements it would have been a bit bland.


Thanks Logan - I have a project now!


Nice photos and descriptions ~ I think I'll try some of that food today!
