If you’re looking for some really flavorful food, Sameem is a great Afghan restaurant in The Grove, only a five-minute drive from campus. The owners are friendly and love to share their food and culture with you, and the dishes are amazing. From the Qabulli rice with lamb falling off the bone, to their grilled kebab platters, to great vegetarian dishes like their eggplant burani, there’s a range of authentic flavors to choose from. The entrees are mostly between $10-$15, and the portions are pretty large. The restaurant itself is small, so making a reservation on the weekends is usually a good idea!
