It's true! I've been to all of them. I went to the Manti when they used to do it only like the second tuesday of the month or something, but I hear it's on the regular menu now. Also, I have had the ashak at Kabul, but man, that place just never appealed to me like it did to so many other people. I hear there is a good Afghan place down south (Federal Way?) somewhere.
Regarding Friday, let's pause on this--summer Fridays are hard, and Brett's out of town and sad to be missing this, since it's one of his favorite places. We can do it in winter when people are more likely to be in town.
In the meantime, we can try for elsewhere!
