  • The Helmand

    Helmand is an outstanding Afghani restaurant and by far the best Middle Eastern food I've tasted so far in the Cambridge/Boston area. They have deliciously tender chicken and lamb kebabs in succulent sauces, and their bread is amazingly good. I am getting hungry just thinking about it! One of the most memorable dishes I ate there was an appetizer made with pumpkin puree and ground beef. Sounds strange, but trust me...it's out of this world!

    I've spent time looking for Afghan food in Los Angeles as good as Helmand and I haven't found it. This is a gem of a restaurant - the food is delicious and the ambiance is very classy (without being prohibitively upscale). It's not in the most convenient location for out of towners sans autos, but it's worth walking from the nearest train! There's a large vegetarian selection, too, which is great.
