Aria Kabab: Qabeli Pallow and Kababs

A few months ago, a new restaurant opened up in the old Kim Anh location on Edmonds in Burnaby.

The restaurant itself is spacious – although it wasn’t very busy on either of my previous two visits.

Since my visit was during December, I asked for some green tea to warm up ($0.99). Their green tea is a bit different as it’s infused with saffron and cardamon.

On my first visit, I ordered the Qabeli Pallow ($11.99) which had a large serving of Afghani Rice topped with lamb, fried carrots, and raisins and served with salad and chatni (chutney). The two bone-in pieces of lamb were pretty good but there were a few parts that were drier than the rest. The chutney sauce wasn’t too spicy and is milder than Indian chutney.

I think the best part of this national dish of Afghanistan was the Afghani Rice.

I came back for a revist a couple of weeks later and ordered the Combo Kabab ($22.99) so I could try out a bunch of their different kababs. It included teka (lamb chunks), shaami (marinated ground beef), and chicken kababs along with fluffy rice.

The chicken was really tender and I thought that the beef was also tender and flavourful. There was plenty of food in this plate which justified the higher price.

Overall, there was some pretty good options here.
