Review - Afghan Sufra




Offering up freshly baked naans of Afghan Bread ($2) served piping hot and fluffy from their cylindrical tandoor ovens, Afghan Sufra is more than just an Afghani bakery. Their bread range also includes Arabic bread, Turkish bread, sesame seed-sprinkled roghani naans, and sheermal, a sweet bread made with milk, sugar, flour and oil that you eat with tea or coffee.



For a fast snack in place of the Aussie toasted sandwich, grab an Afghani Bolani ($5). This five-buck fried flatbread sanger comes filled with potato, spring onion and chilli. For this small shopfront on busy Haldon Street in Lakemba, you'll also find a surprising range of hot dishes too, running from kebabs – skewered meats – to qabuli palaw, which is basically Afghanistan’s national dish. You'll like if you enjoy Indian biryani. The simply furnished shopfront offers up a small number of tables to eat-in, or you can order your meal as takeaway.

I visited for freshly made Afghan bread as part of Taste Food Tours’ Beirut Bangladesh and Beyond tour ($99/person). Read more about this food tour: HERE.
