A few weeks ago, needing a quick dinner before a 7 p.m. movie near the University of Washington campus, we struck out for Kabul Afghan Cuisine in the Wallingford neighborhood along 45th Street.
Spencer and I both had the same main course. . .chicken skewer with one of my all-time favorite dishes–Badenjan Borani–baked eggplant with tomato sauce and yogurt. The rice was buttery, with a sweet edge thanks to a topping of grated carrots and dark raisins.
Dessert is always a must here. Spencer got Firini, the traditional rosewater-and-pistachio custard pudding flavored with cardamom.
