    I always get the rack of lamb. It's a great dish. 3-4 rib chops, perfectly medium rare, grilled with Afghan spices served with pilaf and tasty vegetables that i can't recall. A deal for under $20.

      Absolutely agree about the rack of lamb. It was the best lamb I ever had.

      The Seekh Kabab is also amazing. I'm a fan of the roasted tomatoes on the side too.

        I like both the Chowpan (the rack), and the Dwopiaza. I had the Dwopaiza when I went on that "first date" I posted a while ago.

        We're an item now.

        Silly, silly girl.

          Oh god, the rack of lamb. I went to Helmand for my b-day earlier this week, and had the leftovers for lunch today. Had to close the blinds on my office door as I attacked the bones for every last scrap of meat -- so unladylike, but so worth it!

          My husband loooooves the lamb lawand, which I also like, but I can only rarely tear myself away from the rack and the kabob in order to delve into the lawand.

          I also have to say: I love that they take me seriously when I order the lamb rare. ;)
