Afghan food is still a fairly rare find in New York, but any new spots that open are going to have a hard time beating Sami’s at their kebab game. Their chicken, beef, and lamb skewers are juicy, huge, and come over a bed of buttery rice, which makes for a pretty solid meal at around $20. There’s also a $50 family platter that could easily fill four, or one very hungry body-builder.

This LIC spot is Sami’s second location, and it's more of a takeout hub than their bustling Astoria restaurant. There are only a couple of small tables in the narrow room, but if you do eat in, you’ll get to enjoy some fresh, hot naan right out of the oven.
