I’ve been to Panjshir several times. Each time I’ve been in there, I’ve always wondered about people getting Korean food during the Korean War, German, Italian, or Japanese during WWII, Vietnamese during Vietnam, etc. I’m sure plenty of people ate Italian during WWII, but you’d think there would be at least some stigma around it. In any event, I digress as we’re drawing down in Afghanistan, and I’d like to talk about the food.
The wife and I headed out, thinking we’d get some Crisp and Juicy, only to find out that the building was empty. I assume they’re moving, or have closed, but haven’t been able to find out definitively online. Another FCC resident pull in the parking lot and was typing in her phone with the desperation of a crack addict trying to figure out why there was no pollo a la brasa to be had. Since we were nearby, we went to Panjshir. While not our first choice that evening, Panjshir has never disappointed. Its very good, and also a great value. I ordered a mixed kebab, and my wife got the Kadu Palow. The Kadu Palow is very interesting to me. Its got pumpkin, yogurt, and lamb, which is an unusual (to me), but amazing combination. Its a must try. The kebab, while much less adventurous, is also very good.
I rounded out the meal with a Johnny Walker black, and left feeling full and quite satisfied. If you’ve not been, definitely go.This entry was posted in FCC, Food by rsiv with no comments yet
