202-1833 Anderson St., Granville Island, Vancouver BC, Canada
A Vancouver staple since 1971, this family-owned and managed restaurant was the first to serve traditional Afghan cuisine in Canada. Conveniently situated at the entrance to Granville Island, the Afghan Horsemen is open seven nights a week.
The atmosphere is exotic and welcoming here, where guests have the option of sitting in booths or on cushions with food is served on low-lying tables. Images and art from Afghanistan abound, taking diners into an entirely new world. Carnivores, vegetarians, and vegans alike will find ample sustenance in a menu where kebabs, grilled lamb, and dolmah are featured alongside eggplant baked with herbs, lentil stew, and baked rice served with vegetables.
If you've never eaten Afghan food, it includes hints of Greek and Indian cuisine, which reflects the history of migration through the region dating back to the days of Alexander the Great and leading up to the Moghuls rise to power across South Asia.
