Went out for a late lunch over the weekend at Gungahlin, we didn’t feel like Asian food which seriously limited our choices, it was suggested by Mrs Jonnie that another cafe had opened that was Middle Eastern of some type.
We walked over to Hibberson Street and found the Koochi Afghan Cafe – we were shown to a table in by a very pleasant gentleman who is the son of the owner and ran us through the menu. He seemed pleased to be asked for a coffee how is would be served traditionally, which turned out to be a very hot short black with cardamon seed. The kids wanted juice, orange for one and pineapple, the gentleman (who introduced himself but I’ve forgotten his name – shame!) apologised when he told us that the pineapple juice would be from a bottle, but the orange juice was fresh squeezed – none needed i thought!
We asked for a variety of starters, a platter for two and some chips for the kids (and maybe me).
All of the starters were eaten in short order, most meaty, some vego and all great.
The platter came out (pictured) and was just as good, heavy on the meat, lentils and spices. Excellent meal and the chips were eaten last.
Just over $40 for a good lunch that was something a little different – brilliant.
Good luck to the owner and well worth a visit.
