My Meal At Maiwand

A Quick Personal Bio:

Greetings UMBC Eats, my name is Adam Brown and I am a junior here at UMBC.  I plan on graduating Spring 2014 with a BA in Management of Aging Services.  My vast list of qualifications includes my love for food and passing English 100.  I couldn’t tell you the first thing about cooking, but I really know how to eat out.  I won’t review restaurants (that would imply that I have actual culinary knowledge), but rather, I will give my opinion – honest and unfiltered.

First Impressions:

I’m going to start this entry by stating that I’ve waited up to 45 minutes for my food to be ready.  Maiwand is always crowded (which is typically a good sign), however, the management hasn’t made any effort to figure out how to cope with the large crowds.  That being said, the food is so delicious, I find it hard to complain about the wait.  I went to their Linthicum Heights Location, which is near the BWI hotel park.  The Afghanistani hole-in-the-wall doesn’t look like much from the outside.  To be honest, it doesn’t look like much on the inside either – aside from a few bland pictures on the wall that vaguely remind me of the paintings you’d find in a Taco Bell, there’s pretty much no real sense of atmosphere.  Despite the virtual lack of any ambience, the restaurant is always kept clean.


The Food:

Entrées range from around 8-12$ and appetizers and desserts will run you about 5$.  I usually end up spending about 15$ every time I go to Maiwand Kabob.  I always get the ‘Chicken Kabob’ entrée and I usually split an order of ‘Samosas’ with a friend.  Most entrées come with the kabob, rice, a small salad, and a plate-sized piece of ‘Tandori Bread’.  Each part of the meal is delicious in its own right: the rice is flavored nicely; the salad is plain yet refreshing with its vinaigrette dressing; the meat is tender and spiced perfectly; and the bread is always made fresh.  I always leave Maiwand pleasantly full – and that’s impressive, considering I eat almost twice as much as the average restaurant go-er.

Would I go back?

Definitely.  I love Maiwand Kabob: it’s a delicious, healthy dining option that’s relatively close to campus.  At 15$, Maiwand is not somewhere I can afford every week, so when I go, its always a treat.  Though the service isn’t always great, the amazing food makes up for it.

    Maiwand lets you call in your order ahead! That’s what I do whenever I go there. =)
