New digs, same great Afghan food

Original post made on May 23, 2008

Afghani expatriate Nick Waziri spent 20 years running his Middle Eastern restaurant in the Grant Park Plaza Shopping Center at the corner of Grant Road and El Camino Real. He built a loyal following, but in 2007, not long after making substantial improvements to Nob Hill Food's expanded grocery outlet, the property's landlord announced a rent increase that Waziri couldn't muster. So he began to hunt for a new location.

Sumac is a spice rendered from dried grape leaves? Is this really true? I have never heard of this. Also, I've seen many variations of the spelling of baba ghanoush, but never babaganouche. This is sloppy journalism.

Oops, sorry. Sumac is from some kind of wild berry, near as I can tell. I had changed it in the print version but forgot to change it online; it should be fixed now.

We enjoyed the Paradise at the Grant Park location for years and were sorry to see it move. The new Sunnyvale location is a little space challenged and the few times we have tried it the wait for the food can be much longer than we remembered.

Our favorite is the lamb shank, and I like the cauliflower dish. My wife does not like cauliflower but they prepare it with sufficient spices that she says it tastes OK.
