Afghani in Jordaan & the West

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

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