If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some Afghan fare with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Afghan cuisine at Panjshir, located in Falls Church.
Vegetarians and meat-lovers alike savor the seductive seasonings infused into Panjshir's array of distinctive Afghan dishes. Herbaceous hankerings subside with the seib chalow's apples and seeded afghan prunes, baked with tomato sauce, walnuts, and split peas and served with white rice ($9.95/lunch, $11.95/dinner). The kebab-e-gaow entree skewers spice-and-garlic-marinated beef alongside a bed of saffron rice ($10.95/lunch, $14.95/dinner). Sips of steaming Afghan-style cardamom tea ($2.95) tempt caged tongues to run off for a bout of soul-searching on enlivening spice-trade routes. Savory voyages sweeten with honey-basking baklava ($4.95) or hand-forged chocolate firnee pudding ($4.95). Diners sup, sample, and share in the warmly hued dining room, decorated with rich reds and mirrors that instantly replay your edible journey.
