Concord’s new Kunduz Kabab restaurant opened recently on Clayton Road, offering traditional dishes from Afghanistan and Central Asia, says owner Amanullah Makhdomi.

You’ll find marinated lamb tikka kebabs ($17) served with naan, as well as two pulau dishes including qabili pulau ($17) made with brown basmati rice, carrots, raisins and marinated lamb, and a muling pulau ($21) served with lamb or beef shank. Kunduz Kabab’s Afghan burger ($8) includes onion, tomato and chutney, all wrapped in a flat tandoor bread and served with fries.

Makhdomi, who made kebabs at a Mediterranean market here before opening the restaurant, moved from Afghanistan about six years ago and found a community in Contra Costa County, a county whose high concentration of Afghan immigrants ranks fourth nationwide.

“The reason that I opened the restaurant here is that we don’t have our traditional food in the Bay Area,” he says.

Details: Open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday at 3399 Clayton Road in Concord.
