Feast your eyes on its awesomeness! My youngest is enamoured - she thinks it's like eating in, I quote, "a princess castle".
Afghan Master Kebab specliase in skewered meats which they cook over a narrow charcoal pit at the back of the restaurant. As the meat straddles the pit, the chef fans the charcoal, encouraging it to glow redder and emit more of that tantalising smoke. (Don't worry, the restaurant is not at all smoky.)
Mix kebab, $13.99
This is the "mix kebab" - the two chicken kebabs were out of this world, uncommonly juicy and rubbed with a spicy mix. We also scored a lamb kebab (smoky, tender, yum) and a mince kebab - the only one the kiddo could handle in terms of spice. Thin, Afghan-style naan bread, some fine fresh salad, a yoghurty sauce and another minty, chilli one made for a most excellent lunch.
In my experience, Afghan food in Melbourne tends to be on the dear side. Not here - Afghan Master Kebab has really fair pricing, with everything between $12 and $15 (and the "mix kebab" above was really enough for two). I'm keen to try their "qorma" curries and rice pilafs, studded with carrot and red barberries.
The westie dining scene just got even more diverse - and even more delicious!
