Default anybody like AFGHANISTAN cuisine?

I tried a AFGHAN buffet and it was kind of like Indian food, but not as spicey, it seemed milder, not as much herbs.

I tried a place a few months back and found it very similar to Greek, with the kabobs and eggplant and yogurt dips, etc. But tasted different with the different herbs and spices they used. Enjoyed it.

I had it once, and yes, it was very similar to Greek/Mediterranean food, with kebobs and the like. There were also a few pasta dishes on the menu, too.

I've ate at an Afghanistani restaurant once, in New York. I ordered a rice dish (rice pilao, I believe) and soup. They were pretty good.

There are a few Afghani places in the Minneapolis - St. Paul area, but none in Duluth.

I absolutely love it! I've had it at restaurants and in a friend's home - she was from there. So delicious. It is also similar to Georgian food in many ways and that is something I've never come across in the States ... sadly. Any Georgians out there? Could you please, please open a restaurant near me?

I first ate Afghani food years ago in D.C. Fell in love with it - and then couldn't find any restaurants!

Let's see: After the US military ended it's involvement in Vietnam, a lot of Vietnamese restaurants opened in the US...So, following that logic, are we a few years away from a bunch of Afghani and Iraqi restaurants opening in the US?
