De Afghanan Restaurant

Yesterday we were out finishing up some Christmas shopping, and we decided to try a newish Afghani restaurant on Newall Ave., in the same shopping complex as Tuesday Morning and Casper's Hot Dogs, in Downtown Walnut Creek. It's a tiny little place, maybe 10 tables. The service was good, though the food took quite awihle to come. Ted had a lamb dish that he thought was going to be ground, but was actually little lamb chops that I thought was delicious...very flavorful with nice spices and a good texture. It was served with rice and salad. Maya ordered a dish of what were described as dumplings with leeks and potatoes inside, but really were more like thin potato pancakes. Also very flavorful and yummy. I ordered a stewed eggplant and tomato dish that was perhaps the best of all, served with some yogurt and cucumber. It was delicious and had a very nice texture. We'll definately go back, as the price was fair, the service was friendly, the food was very good, and it was very close to good bargain shopping at Tuesday Morning! (I got a waffle iron, so don't be surprised if there's a waffle party in the future...)
