Afghan Cuisine in the Fruitvale District of Oakland

Real Estate Agent with Golden Gate Sotheby's International 01427070

Oakland is becoming known as a food mecca, and sometimes called the Brooklyn of New York. When I first moved to Oakland over 20 years ago, we always had to cross the Bay Bridge in search for an amazing restaurant. Fast forward to today, new restaurants are opening all over the East Bay and one of the drivers of our real estate market.


Do you crave Basmati Rice, scented with lamb juice and mixed with caramelized carrots, plump raisins, and crunchy almond sliver? How about Kabobs made with fresh halal meat? Have you ever tried Mantu, which were made fresh in-house, came stuffed with flavorful, spiced ground beef and topped with yogurt, lentils, and dried mint? Craving for falafel, gyros, shawarma, burgers, fried chicken wings, and Philly cheesesteaks? This new restaurant pretty much have it all - from gyros to burgers to Philly cheesesteaks, offering mainly Afghan and Mediterranean cuisine.


Yummy Grill Afghan Kabob House is the only Afghan restaurant in this neighborhood, where there are taco trucks on nearly every corner.


So to anyone who has never tasted Afghan cuisine before, consider giving it a try. The information below may change, but as of now, here you go Bon Apetit!

Nice shout-out for Yummy Grill Afghan Kabab House in Oakland. Healthy, flavorful food. We have our favorite Afghan place just a few blocks down Van Ness from us.

Good morning Elisa - I have never tried Afgahn Cuisine.  This is a very nice description.  I am sure the restaurant appreciates it.

Elisa Uribe Realtor #01427070 - I could almost smell the Afgahn Cuisine now and I'm getting hungry! It's nice to live in an atmosphere where there is something good, other than fast food. 

Cheers to good health and happy living!

Hello Eliza - although there is an abundance of ethnic restaurants in our area, the Afghan restaurant in Old Pasadena is no longer in business (at least to my knowledge) . I am glad I was able to experience it. Unique,  one-of-a-kind businesses give a nice flavor(no pun intended) to our neighborhoods.
