khyber pass


When we went to Au Pied Du Cochon for Mina's birthday, we walked by a delicious smelling restaurant called Khyber Pass.  We later learned that they serve authentic Afghan food, but we only recently made the time to try it for ourselves.

The appetizers were amazing, particularly the "sambossa" (as it was called on the menu ) which was basically the same as a samosa but had different spices. The main dishes we ordered were served with basmati rice three ways and a really refreshing cucumber salad loaded with cilantro. 

With all of the amazing restaurants in Montreal, we have kept our palates busy and haven't missed the experience of trying new cuisines  around the globe. We are, however, incredibly excited about our upcoming trip to Morocco. If the food there is anything like it was in Egypt, it will be delicious. Right now, we're using pinterest to plan our trip there - if you know of any places we should check out, your recommendations are welcome!

  11. Fes... You have to go to Fes, it's so beautiful, the medina is amazing ( so narrow no cars can fit and they have to transport everything about by donkey). Marrakech is amazing too... And so close to the mountains... Take your walking shoes!
