What is considered Afghanistan cuisine and can anyone suggest a restaurant in the SFV? Would Shirin be considered this genre? Thanks so much
I think Shirin is Persian food.
I like Afghan food and miss Afghan Cuisine in Tarzana (Golestan). Someone can tell you - there's a place in Pasadena and another place with some dishes in Claremont, but the names escape me.
Aushak, Sambosas, grilled quail, soups all great and different from Iranian food.
Also, the polos are good and similar to Persian ones, but still distinct. Most of the Iranians I know admire Afghan cooks.
I know in Northridge on Reseda south of Nordhoff there's Morigi's. It's an Afgani/pizza place, an interesting combo.
