At this family-owned affair, you start with the mantoo, Afghani dumplings with meat and onions inside, served with a yogurt sauce. Someone has to get the Qabuli Pulaw, the country’s national dish, which is a gigantic skewer of beef, served with cucumber salad and rice with carrots and raisins. (There’s also an Uzbek Pulaw, with lamb.) Then you’re on your own. Portions are large at this casual, delicious, and friendly place. “Halal” is the rough equivalent of “kosher,” incidentally, and just means permissible foods for Muslims to eat. So no pork, and no alcohol.
