Enjoy Authentic Afghan Food At Afghan Bistro In Springfield

Afghan Bistro is located at 8081 Alban Rd D, Springfield, VA. It serves boldly flavored Afghan cuisine, based on family recipes, served in warm, homey storefront surrounds. Recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation are offered in a very relaxed casual modern atmosphere at Afghan Bistro with a full bar, beer, and wine.

Lamb chops at Afghan Bistro are thin and tender, with a bit of fat for flavor and char for smokiness

According to northernvirginiamag.com, “Dishes have roots going back hundreds of years, like the lamb moghuli. It’s reminiscent of Indian food, the garam masala tying it into that porous region of Central Asia. A huge, tender leg of lamb sits above a creamy sauce built from eggplant, tomato, and Chaka, a labneh-like yogurt. It is exotic and homey, heady in that mysterious way.”

As per northernvirginiamag.com, “Chicken lawaan—lawaan is a style of cooking with yogurt—is a subtler dish, with cilantro giving a tip of brightness. A deep, comforting dish is sholah, though it’s called risotto on the menu, instead of the monotony of only rice, this porridge contains chickpeas, mung beans, black and red beans and lots of dill and parsley. It is savory and interesting. It can come topped with a beef shank or with butternut squash and eggplant, both endearingly soft. They are tender, but they keep their structure. It is not a mush of baby food.”
