Kabuli Palau: traditional rice dish layered with carrots, sultanas and almonds, with your choice of meat.
Step through the unassuming entrance of Afghan Gallery Restaurant on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy to find a hidden world of a traditional tent room, hanging lanterns and tapestries adorning the walls. Inside is rustic with exposed brick, dark wood, an eclectic mix of artwork and floor rugs; while upstairs is moody with tapestries, richly hued fabric billowing from the ceiling and cushions scattered on the floor. For more than 40 years Australia’s first Afghani restaurant has been delighting diners with starters such as Mantoo – pastry stuffed with minced meat, topped with yoghurt sauce – before pan-fried chicken kebabs, egg and spices. Perhaps spiced beef stew and cumin rice tempt; while vegetarians are more than catered for with choices like slow-cooked eggplant and herbs in thick sauce.
