Afghan Style

As Friday is our special family night, we are always on the lookout for somewhere new to eat. Brother-in-law suggested a new Pukhtoon-style place called the Khyber Pass. I thought the decor and food were fascinating:

Menu's covered in traditionally embroidered cloth

There were a row of these little teapots hanging from the roof

This was the rather pretty, but not very bright, light in the loo.

This ceiling was decorated with bangles, the posters I assume are from Pushto films (or is that man with the mouche Sultan Rai? I couldn't be sure).

I didn't manage to take a picture of the clay oven or the holster hanging from the ceiling. If you had read Khalid Hosseini's The Kite Runner or A Thousand Splendid Suns you might recognise the food: chicken pilau with shredded carrot and raisins, chappli kebab's and Peshawari nan bread.
