Imagine being lost in the suburb of Sunshine, a mostly Vietnamese-centric society where the humble bowl of Pho or Bun Bo Hue is King. However, as you wander about the streets you catch a whiff of smoke that catches your attention and it stops you in your steps. It catches your lungs, not harsh enough to make you cough, but strong enough to engage your saliva glands sending hangry signals to your brain. As you edge closer to the source with your canine-like sense of smell, you encounter a humble looking restaurant. As the cloud clears and you rub the tear-inducing smoke from your face.. you read the sign, ‘Afghan Master Kebabs’. Overly dramatic much? Maybe, but this is what happens when you have some of the best charcoal grilled meats and bread in your backyard.
I am a fan of Afghan Master Kebab and I cannot endorse this restaurant enough because of the sheer quality of the food and how fresh everything is prepared!
I always get the Mixed Kebab when I come here. Why? Because you get 4 skewers of meat, side salad and fresh Afghan bread and dip for $13.99! You get two chicken skewers, one lamb mince and one lamb kebab skewer. The chicken is succulent and gleefully moist whilst the lamb mince is flavorful and has the scent of charcoal imbued into every crevice. As if the meat isn’t enough, each meal comes with one Afghan bread that is freshly baked and the owners are very generous because I have never left hungry.
If you’re ever in Sunshine and catch whiff of smoke in the air, you just have to follow the yellow brick road (disclaimer: yellow brick road may not exist).
