Aria Kabob Cafe captures authentic Afghan flavors with a menu of skewered halal meats soaked in fresh spice marinade. Woven patterns from Afghan rugs stretch across the walls as diners dive into a tapestry of flavors in an appetizer such as the medley of turnovers stuffed with potatoes, chives, and special seasoning in the bolani mix, or the Afghan nachos crowned with chili, cheese, beans, and jalapeños. The kebab entree pierces cubes of meat such as broiled lamb and char-grilled ground beef, and arrives at tables with an entourage of rice, salad, and bread. Lunch specials include the plate of lamb shank served with white or brown rice, spinach, and bread, providing ample midday fuel for an evening of howling at the moon. Sips of an espresso, latte, or cappuccino from the café reenergize nosh-weary mouths, and smoothies deliver fresh glasses of strawberry banana, banana, apple, or orange flavors.
