At Unaabi Grill, chefs orchestrate a menu of authentic Afghan kebabs, rice dishes, and vegetarian platters. Wood charcoal infuses lamb, beef, chicken, and seafood kebabs with a smoky aroma and empathy for humidors, both of which mingle with the meat's freshly grated spices. Vegetarian palates savor eggplant, okra, or pumpkin simmered with onions, tomatoes, herbs, and spices. Before delving into desserts such as rosewater-and-pistachio pudding or homemade baklava, guests can admire the collection of intricate tapestries and burnished cooking vessels that pepper the dining room.
