29 January, 2018; Dubai, UAE: Kishmish, Dubai’s first gourmet Afghan street and soul food restaurant, is ready to open its doors to Dubai’s Dar Al Wasl mall in February. The authentic Afghan eatery tells the tale of three patriotic Afghan women with a shared love for food, nostalgia for home, and a mutual dream: to share the riches and comforts of Afghan food with the world. Kishmish is the first gourmet restaurant to bring authentic Afghan street and soul food to Dubai. Kishmish strives to provide a relaxing, enjoyable dining experience in a friendly, family oriented atmosphere.
Iman, Fatima and Homaira have been family friends for generations, whilst they grew up outside of their native land, each of them holds an innate appreciate for their history, rich culture and, of course, their native tongues. Having grown up learning of their culture over traditional Afghan meals, the trio find a unique bond between the cuisine and the celebration of their native cultures. Kishmish is the actualization of their dream, to brings the sights, sound and flavours of the bustling Kabul streets to the world, an education through gastronomical experiences.
Aiming to revive the identity of Afghanistan, Kishmish provides the same tastes and experiences. Capturing the complexity of aromas and tastes to represent a unique fusion of South, West and Central Asian cuisines; bringing them all together in a gastronomic harmony that is a mirror reflection of Afghanistan’s geographical location.
