Parsa Restaurant - Taste of Afghanistan - 309 7th Street South
Hey everybody! This was a nice little place to eat. My stomach was in revolt already cause it was so empty, and when they brought out the meal at first, there was one little plate of food. I almost started to cry, but then came another plate and another and yet another. My frown was turned upside down and became a nice big grin from ear to ear. The flavors were very distinct and pleasing to my palate. What I thought would leave me painfully hungry was very satisfying and I was left not wanting. We were given a bit of a cultural lesson on the differences of Afghan rice and seasonings. What a great meal. Every bite was pleasing and unique in a very good way. The flat bread was hard and crunchy, but at the same time flavorful. If you expect a naan bread, this stuff will be a shock. However if you are expecting a crispy harder bread that could be used as a spoon for the meat and sauce, you'd be right on track. (maybe that's what it is used for ;-)). In any case I look forward to "M" coming with us so we can go back there again. Delish!! "C"
