Experiencing Shinwari Cuisine @ Wakha Restaurant

The Restaurant

Another hidden gem. The Wakha Restaurant, absolutely one of its kind. Shinwari Cuisine is renowned for customised butchering and cooking.  The distinctive feature of Shinwari cuisine is that meat is charcoal grilled or cooked with no spice, salt and in cooked in lamb's own fat, making it uniquely delicious. 


Waiting to be served

The lamb is hung and aged. Every ingredients was definitely fresh. Bringing out the best of its taste.

The Restaurant

Me and my wifey was hunting for dinner before heading to Mall of Emirates. We stumbled upon this hidden gem. Feeling like the delicious food was calling upon us. So we turned circles to find parking. We were glad we gave it a try. Definitely one or perhaps the only that serves truly delicious Afghani/Pakistani food. The place that i had the best lamb shank ever.


Waiting to be served. Btw, the Shinwari are an ethnic Pashtun Tribe of Eastern Afghanistan and Pakistan. They settled in the eastern valleys of Nangarhar province, in Dih Bala and nearby valleys. Mostly traders and businessmen. What i know, they definitely know how to cook meat. Thumbs up.

Complimentary tea and vege
Start by serving some fresh vegetables. That's very healthy for a start. They also provide us some traditional hot tea the the end. Very lovely.


Our Mains

For mains we had the Zafarani Kebab (AED40.00) minced meats mixed with other ingredients. Definitely played with the mixture so well that it tasted really good. Best one i ever had so far. Dumpukht 250grams (AED40.00), my favourite. Best lamb shank that i ever had. The meat was so juicy and tasty. Very tender, feels like it could just melt in your mouth. We had Lassi Sweet (AED15.00) a sweet or savoury traditional drink made from yogurt or buttermilk base with water. Very delicious and refreshing!


Location : Wakha Restaurant, Opposite Lulu Hypermarket

Rating   : 4.60/5.0
Critics  : The ambiance wasn't that good from out to inside. Needs some refurbishment. Menu was not easily understood by expats. Perhaps more English description of the menu. With picture better.


Will i be back? Already craving.
