worst Dorm Meal (chosen from an infinite list of
gastronomical gutbombs.

DISCS ---------_________--------
Big followups Pages 28 & 29

Best Local

Pages 6-11

In a booming metropolis like Ann Arbor there's
bound to be a lot of "Bests." This year's polling
brought in hundreds of answers. Compare your own
"Best" with our favorites.

And now for the musical question, "What's so funny
'bout Peace, Love, and Understanding?" it's Elvis
Costello, back in Ann Arbor to present his blend of
creative cynicism and musical eloquence. The man
that has been called a legend will be performing with
T-Bone Burnett.

Best Sports

Pages 12 & 13

It's been the best of times (and the worst of times)
for Michigan sports this year. With the help of the
Daily sports staff, we've compiled the cream of
Michigan Athletes.

European yawn

Pages 31& 32

Best Arts

Pages 14-16

Discover the Best places to go to be relaxed by
classical music or fine theater, or have yopr ears
challenged by the many rock acts who play in Ann
Arbor. Also, a showcase of the movies and clubs that
feed Ann Arbor's insatiable appetite for the arts.

If you thought that foreign films were an artistic
treat, you may reconsider after finding out what
Weekend has to say about Carmen. This Spanish im-
port figures to be a dose of dull dancing.
Michael Douglas takes a romantic romp as he
plays hero in the South American jungle in the action
filled Romancing The Stone. Lots of fun is the result
of this race for an emerald (not an Ark), and guess
who gets the girl?

By Leslie Pettis
T HE AUGUST 1981 issue of Esquire
magazine named the Afghan Home
Family Restaurant as one of the 100
best new restaurants in America. (This
is conspicuously noted in their Yellow
Pages listing). Esquire will be glad to
know it still merits the accolade. Since
then the Afghan Home has moved from
its original location in the Maple
Village Shopping Center to the corner of
Washtenaw and Huron Parkway, ad-
joining the Varsity House.
Since most don't know what to expect
from Afghan food I think you'll be
pleasantly surprised - I know I was.
The menu lists authentic foods for ap-
petizers, soups, meat entrees (mostly
lamb), vegetarian entrees and desser-
ts. Beverages, including liquors, are
also available.
We started with aush, a soup of
legumes (kidney beans and chickpeas),

noodles and yogurt. This is garnished
with ground beef and mint. One of the
things I enjoyed most about all the food
was the subtle effect the spices had.
Although some have complained it may
be too subtle.
Along with the soup we had an ap-
petizer, bulannee Kachalu which is
coarsley mashed potato in a crispy
wrapping, simila' to turnover pastry or
fil dough. It's served with Afghan
sauce - minced herbs in a spicy/hot
vinegar base.
Each meal comes with a small cold(
salad of cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, a
few scallions and shredded carrots
seasoned with garlic and dill in olive oil.
I found the Afghan sauce was better on
this salad than on the appetizer. Along
with the salad comes unleavened flat
bread.
Our meat entree was sabzi chalan.
Comprised of very tender, maybe a lit-
tle overcooked, lamb chunks braised in
onion and served on a bed of garlicky
cooked spinach. The meat entrees come
with white rice - not Chinese-style but
tossed with oil to separate the grains
and lightly seasoned with fennel seeds
and/or dill seeds.
The vegetarian entree was aushak.
Again the familiar crispy wrapper
filled with scallions topped with a
slightly spicy tomato sauce and yogurt
sprinkled with mint. The yogurt had the
consistency of thin gravy. Happily, not
what I envisioned.
For dessert, shirbrinj, a cool,
creamy, very ricy pudding with a hint
of sweetness from cardamom and spar-
sley sprinkled with chopped pistachios.
As a lover of rice pudding I was
especially pleased. Needless to say, I
was impressed with the whole meal.

best discs, best classical music, best books, best

Arbor. Film capsules, movie previews, theater notes,
and bar dates, all listed in a handy-dandy, day-by-day

BOOKS

Argentina comes to Ann Arbor in the production of
Evita at the Michigan Theater. The play is based on
the life of Eva Peron and features much of the
original broadway cast. "Stand back, Buenos Aires!"
RESTAURANTS

The food has character. You can taste
the different ingredients and tell that
care was taken in the preparation.
While it may sound like a lot of food, the
portions are moderate as sur-
prisingly are the prices.
As for the restaurants' physical
layout, it's well-lighted with a separate
dining area bathed in blue light. Reser-
vations are needed for this room.
Another room is outlined in large red
pillows where presumably you can eat
from, the floor. Native music plays in
the background of the dining areas. The
bar is in a separate area off the main

Best of Ann Arbor
Friday. Apri 13. 1984
Vol, II, Issue 2
AS ANOTHER school year comes to a close, it seems
apropriate to honor those businesses, services and
entertainers that have made Ann Arbor what it is. In that spirit
we present the Second Annual Best of Ann Arbor. We received
quite a few ballots this year, which made for quite a bit of
counting, but allowed a lot of people to voice their opinions
about what's "Best" in Ann Arbor. We would like to thank
everyone who took the time to fill out a ballot and encourage
you all do take part in next year's project. Our cover photo
collage is by Daily chief photographer Doug McMahon.
