Mantoe

Afghani in Jordaan & the West

An Afghan family runs this small restaurant, which is so cosy it feels like you're dining in someone's home. There's no menu: it's just whatever they cook that day, perhaps mantu (steamed dumplings) stuffed with minced meat and herbs, or qormah e nadroo (a spicy lamb dish), served with palaw (baked rice). A good wine list tops it off.

A mini three-course menu for kids costs €12.50.

Don't be in a hurry, as the multiple courses take a while.
