Dublin’s culinary landscape is a melting pot of global flavors, each restaurant contributing a unique chapter to the city’s diverse dining scene. In our latest street interview series, we had the pleasure of chatting with a Dubliner hailing from Afghanistan, who enthusiastically recommended D’Grill as the go-to spot for authentic Afghan cuisine. Located at 40 Aungier Street, Dublin 2, D’Grill has carved a niche for itself, drawing patrons in with its enticing menu and warm ambiance.
A Gastronomic Adventure:
Following our interviewee’s recommendation, we went into D’Grill and, after talking to several of the regulars, chose our dinner. For starters, we indulged in the freshness of beef dumplings, accompanied by a choice of two delectable sauces – Dal or Lentil. The flavors danced on our palates, setting the stage for the main course.
For mains, we savored the Kaboli Pilau with Lamb Shank – a dish that showcased the artistry of Afghan culinary tradition. The fragrant rice, tender lamb shank, carrots, and raisins intertwined seamlessly, creating a symphony of tastes and textures that transported us straight to the heart of Afghanistan.
