Ariana, Sahar & Pamir - Afghan

One of the interesting suburb in Melbourne is Dandenong City, about 34 km or 35 mins drive from CBD. Here along Thomas Street, there are several good restaurants where you can sample the traditional food of the Afghan. The ones that I frequent most is Sahar and Ariana. I have yet to try out Pamir, which is further up the street. Afghan food are very close to food in Northern India and Pakistan as they share the common border. Their food is quite spicy and usually accompanied by pickles and yoghurt. Most of the dishes are eaten with the Naan bread.
I have dropped in on several occasion to have my meal there. On one occasion, I packed lunches on our way to the Sorrento beach for a picnic and swim.
