Badenjon bourani proved to be a lovely dish of eggplant with a lightly spiced sauce of tomato and yogurt. The meat eaters chose a lamb kebab dish with salad and Afghan nan and I chose cauliflower with rice. The cauliflower was very soft and delicately spiced. The rice was quite lovely, with a long exotic grain.
The servings were quite small so to round off the meal we chose another dish from the starters menu. Ashak - delicate leek pastries dressed in a yogurt and tomato sauce similar to that of the eggplant dish - were the highlight of the meal.
The drinks list is quite small but adequate and you can bring your own wine if you prefer.
I really liked Afghan Village. It qualified as our first true 'discovery' as none of us had been there before, despite its existence in the neighbourhood for over ten years. This is what discovery night is all about. We'll be back.
