Kabob Palace: Afghani, not Pakistani
Rohina Mirzai, owner with her husband Mirahmad of the Kabob Palace on Emmet Street (where Carmello's used to be) called Dish recently to complain about her new place being reffered to as a "Middle Eastern/Pakistani place" in these pages, electronic and otherwise, to which we offer this shout out: They serve Afghan food, not Pakistani food. Our apologies, Ms. Mirzai.
The Kabob Palace opened just a week ago, and has already had mouths watering. Mirzai and her family hail from Northern Virginia, where they had a similar shop. Dish has heard good reviews so far, especially on a three-course prix fixe dinner for two they offered recently for $32.
