On West Main And Beyond, A Little Spice Is Nice


The Afghan Grand Market on West Main set up a steam table six or seven weeks back and started serving hot meals of kabobs and curries. The curry changes day to day: Monday and Tuesday it’s lamb, Wednesday/Thursday goat, and on Fridays, chicken. They all come ladled over basmati rice with naan and some creamy sauce. There’s even a little side salad. The curry is of the milder variety spice-wise but there’s a sauce to fix that. All the food is halal and the curry is done in vegetable oil, not butter. It’s all $6 to $8.

A little farther down on West Main, just east of 14th Street, is Nasir Sathi, who used to serve his Pakistani delights in Manhattan but brought his family to Charlottesville to raise his children in a more family-friendly environment. His Kabab & Curry has been there just a month now. I had the goat curry, which came on long rice, with warm tandoori bread and a side salad. Very good. There’s a fairly extensive menu that includes fish and shrimp curries as well as fish kebabs. There’s plenty of reasons for repeat visits. The curry here is done in vegetable oil as well.
