    • Some love for Afghan Kabob

      Before landing here in Chicago in 1982 Nasir Raufi and his wife fled the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan for Iran, and then Germany. He owned a furniture store for a long time, then he opened Afghan Kabob almost three years ago at the intersection of Elston and Montrose. As far as I know it's the only Afghan restaurant in the region, ever since the demise of Devon Avenue's Afghan Restaurant, and the (supposedly) in-the-process relocation of Skokie's Kabul House. Its novelty may be part of the reason they pull in a multiethnic range of customers from all over the city and suburbs, but it's more likely the solid, careful execution of his country's cuisine that keeps them coming back.
