A young man from Kabul, Afghanistan holds many fond memories of mouth watering smells and savory flavors of food in the neighborhood where he was born and raised, De Afghanan. He had a vision to one day bring back the same unforgettable, sense awakening tastes and smells to his life again.
The founder of De Afghanan Restaurants, Aziz Omar and his immediate family, soon made his vision a reality by opening his first restaurant location in 1993 in what is known as, “Little Kabul” in Fremont, California. The restaurant was named after the neighborhood which reminded him of the rich tastes of Afghan food he once enjoyed. A core and unique quality which Aziz wants to be sure De Afghanan continues to possess is, the ability to preserve the authenticity and exquisiteness of true Afghani flavors found within the various dishes served.
