Okay, so I got to tell you about this place. The SSS and I have recently been on a mission to go to places to eat that we talk about, but don't seem to ever actually visit. Big hit this last week at Khorasan Kabob House.
Khorasan is located across from the Western Mall at 41st and Elmwood. The location was previously occupied by Troika, a European grocery store and eatery. Okay, it's an old 7-11. No Slurpees anymore, but I did see a mango lassi or two make their way by.
The decor is nothing to brag about. The interior of the restaurant is small and the decor fairly sparse. There is a great collection of carpets in the dining room. But trust me, you aren't going to care about the decor.
The food is Asian in the sense that India and Afghanistan is part of Asia. Sure, as the name promises, kabobs are available and there is the omnipresent Butter Chicken on the menu, but there are also several highly authentic Afghan and Indian dishes on the menu. Make sure you try some roti with your meal and also be sure to get the stuffed grape leaves for an appetizer. The entrees are reasonably priced and really tasty. One word of caution, though. If you can't navigate the anatomy of a chicken that has been cut into about 15 pieces, bone on, then you might want to look at lamb or beef dishes.
Get in there and try it, though. Super good stuff. And while you are at it, get yourself out of your usual routine. There is a ton of great food here in Sioux Falls. Go try it.
