Open only for breakfast and lunch, Zohra's caters to the 9-to-5 crowd with a little bit of everything a Downtown-diner could possibly want: Afghan foods, American standbys, even Indian tacos. But stick with the Middle Eastern stuff. Chicken kabobs are moist and unbelievably tender, served with peas on fluffy rice. There’s also chicken salan (stewed in a rich, warm gravy heavy with cardamom and mint, among other aromatic spices) gyros and a number of vegetarian choices that come à la carte or as a meal.

For something a little more out of the ordinary, pay a visit to Pars Cuisine, the Persian restaurant near the Century Rio 24 theater.

Meals Served: LunchDinner

All of the dishes at Ariana come with a hefty portion of white basmati rice dusted with tart, purple sumac powder (a shaker of which accessorizes each table). The dishes also all come with a green, mustardy chutney of cilantro and walnuts, a sauce that relies on housemade yogurt, a salad of diced tomato, cucumber and onion, and a slice of flatbread, which is baked twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry. There could be a guy in front of you buying lamb tongues or pickled garlic heads that need to be fished out of the vat. When you order, much of the meal is made from scratch. But there’s no need to stay planted at your table while you wait—interesting grocery items like Bulgarian feta, organic Afghani figs, chickpea cookies and vats of grapeseed oil beg for your inspection.

Driving north on Wyoming from the freeway, you can’t help but notice this grocery/café’s vibrantly painted building. Inside, you can nibble on Middle Eastern fare ranging from kabobs to hummus to herbed tabouleh. Everything is made fresh to order. Vegetarians will appreciate the meat-free selections.

The tiny restaurant in this grocery store may not look like much, but don’t be fooled: The menu boasts some of the best falafel and shawarma sandwiches around, as well as hummus that would be worth crossing a desert for. Not only that, but the grocery has an excellent selection of halal meats, and the in-house bakery produces fresh breads daily. (Alibi Staff, May 20, 2011)

Albuquerque - University

Kabab House

301 Cornell Dr SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
688-1503
Nearby Theater: SUB Theater (See Film Times)

5 rating (2 votes)
Don’t let the tacky Bud Light signs fool you (or the fact that the restaurant’s name is spelled three different ways on them). This cozy little cafe serves up some great and authentic Persian food. The titular kabobs are as good as you could hope for—especially the bone-in lamb—and the staff is friendly and eager to guide you to the best parts of the menu. Watch out for the salted yogurt drink doogh, though—Westerners might not be prepared for its pungency. (Alibi Staff, February 20, 2014)

Sahara’s menu is straightforward, listing expected meats and purées and several vegetarian dishes. Meats come either in a sandwich or combo platter, which are loaded with enough sides to appease the most voracious appetites. The falafel totally rocks the casbah, as do the chicken dishes, the velvety hummus and the beautifully composed salads. Don’t forget to get a nice, hot cup of spice-infused tea.

If you live in the west University area and are bored to tears by salad bars and onion rings, this is the place for you. Vibrant salads and a variety of little pickles accompany gorgeous Middle Eastern platters brimming with spiced, all-natural meats. The Jerusalem salad’s tomato, cucumber and tahini combination is bright and flavorful; perfect with the homemade pita and hummus. Chicken lovers will rejoice in the kabobs, which are tender and delicious. Don’t forget to drool over the huge assortment of housemade nut-and-honey-drenched pastries in the front case.

Don’t worry about the generic name. The food is what matters. Stroll into this relaxed and cozy dining room to have your kasbah fully rocked. We recommend the tender dolmas, divine hummus, crispy falafel, juicy chicken and lamb kabobs and delightful gyros. Plus, the staff is wonderful. Need we say more? (Alibi Staff, July 14, 2016)
