We went to Khyber Pass, one of my favorite East Village restaurants that I never ever go to. It’s surprisingly never crowded at this place. I don’t know why. The food is great.
I ordered the special of the day Mahicha Palow (Lamb Shank) $18. It came with two big shanks. Very tender meat. I love the Harissa spicy sauce on the table to go with it.
Vegetable soup came with the entree. There was a dollop of sour cream in it. I liked it.
Justin got the Mantoo dumplings $11. Dang, these were good. Why doesn’t anyone eat here?
I remember leaving a large umbrella there years ago. I came back a week later and they still had it. I think one of the chefs was using it. But they still had it!
Their sign used to say “Afghani Restaurant” a long time ago. I wonder if they took that down because tourists are scared of terrorists?
Justin told the waitress she had a cute smile. I think I was a little drunk. Â But that doesn’t really explain anything.
