Returning mates have told me the tucker in Kabul is fantastic, can it be true?
Are you for ****ing real?
There's a lot of good places in W A Khan - the Red Pepper near the air museum does a good steak and the food at l'Atmosphere is excellent and there's a swimming pool where you can enjoy the bikini-clad aid workers, post prandially.
The Gandamack does a reasonable lunch, including "Grilled Sliced Aborigine", which turned out to be an Aubergine dish.
Avoid the Chinese restaurant near the Emergency hospital. It gets raided all the time because they offer a rather more intimate 'Chinese takeaway' which involves women rather than spring rolls and thus upsets the Pastuns.
Kabul is one of my favourite cities, as it goes.
Its REMF-e-licious. Enjoy.
Indeed - but they're a damn sight better than that place in the centre of LG on the road to Aynak.
Depends where you go in Kabul - personally the best I've found is the KBR place in Camp Souter. IJC is okay, and the so called 'Supreme Catering' in the HQ are anything but! To be fair its a challenge to cook interesting meals for multiple nationalities day in day out, but what is served up is repetitive and bland. Best food I've had to date in ISAF was at FOB Fenty, over in RC(E) - superb food out that way.
Please don't take this as a whine though - if the worst that things get out here is 'repetitive and bland' then frankly I'm all to well aware that I (and anyone else up here) is on a total luxury cruise compared to the real world - shame that many of our allies staff don't think that and just whine incessantly. Also don't get me started on the sodding 'official rules for use of camp Sauna by registered couples'.
fella, I was asking the question because I was not sure if they where taking the piss or not, the proper comments regarding the quality of the food where helpful.
by the way, I am v real!
I don't believe you, you don't have any mates. And certainly none who've been anywhere near Kabul - do you?
Which bit dont you believe
I not going to justify my question, its been asked in good faith.
mates plenty, in Kabul plenty, **** responses to a simple enough question...plenty!
wow great insight, are your other 12319 posts this good?
In general if you are in a Supreme cookhouse, its going to be shit, if you are in a KBR cookhouse its going to be good. I am told that you can order a cracking curry from down town and have it delivered.
