Review - Kabul House




After conquering the Afghani kebab at Kebab Al-Hojat I moved on to mantu at Kabul House. With five years in the suburb, this was the first Afghani restaurant in Merrylands, and where most Afghani people recommend you come to eat. I'm told the décor has changed over time, becoming more elaborate as the restaurant’s popularity grew.



What you should come here to try are Mantu ($16/10 pieces) which are lamb mince and onion dumplings, with lovely thin skins just like Chinese dumplings, topped with yellow split pea dal. Afghan dal is a little thicker than the Indian dhal you might be used to. The whole dish is drizzled with yoghurt and sprinkled with dried herbs. You probably want a minimum of two or three dumplings per person.



Take them with some traditional Afghan Tea with Cardamom ($3) and perhaps try out the Persian tea drinking method where you hold a sugar lolly in your mouth and drink unsweetened tea through it. This restaurant also makes Afghan bread, and huge family platters of charcoal grilled meats that I’ve earmarked for a return visit when I’m not dining with a Taste Food Tours group.
