Best Mantu

Sultan Palace

If you like dumplings, or potstickers, or ravioli, and you have not tried mantu yet ... well, stop what you're doing right now, and head for this Afghani joint at Main Gate Square. The dumplings—which have roughly the same dimensions of medium-sized ravioli—are packed with a seasoned ground-beef mixture, and then topped with a creamy sauce. The flavor of these warm, puffy treats is at once familiar (thanks to the beef and the texture) and exotic (the spicing!). Trust us. Go there.
