~ Bamian: Afghan Cuisine in Falls Church ~

Don't worry. Everything is ok. I am still eating a lot, just haven't had time to blog about it :) Last week, after we packed up boxes for Operation Christmas Child, a few of us head over to Virgina for some Afghan food at Bamian.

I had never heard of this place before and I had no idea what kind of place it is. But, as we walked it, it looked very nice. It even has a huge chandelier. Who doesn't want to dine in the lights of crystals?

They also have these semi private rooms with tables inside and a little light. Those are cute! It looks very intimate.

We got to sit in this big long table in the middle of the restaurant. I felt special :)

It was a late dinner and we were all starving. I don't know if that's why we ate so much bread! Just bread and more bread! It was really good bread though.

Well, the eggplant dip helps too.

And this sauce. I forgot what it was though.

I had the chicken kabobs and it was amazing! The chicken was so tender and juicy and flavorful. I am hungry now, just thinking about it. The rice was very good too.

It came with this beef stew. It went very well with the rice and the bread.

I think the price was decent. The place was pretty. The service was acceptable, though not the greatest. Food was good. Will I drive there again just to eat? Probably not. But, then, I hate driving :)

I feel so hungry now!! But, I am in bed, ready to sleep so I must not go grab anything in the kitchen. Lesson learned. Don't blog about food before going to bed!
