Hedonists Afghan Dinner at Walter's/Claremont CA (Cross-Posted)
This is a cross-post of a special Yarom & Hedonists dinner ( Afghan Cuisine is delicious and not very well-known in Los Angeles: We don't have many Afghan restaurants. Walter's ( is a long-established Afghan-owned restaurant in Claremont, CA (32 miles East of DTLA) and features several Afghan dishes on their menu. By special arrangement with the owners, we have arranged for a very special 10-item Dinner (including several off-the-menu items) for a truly EPIC and HEDONIST Afghan experience! Here's a little background on Afghan cuisine: This special dinner will be served "FAMILY-STYLE" and "ALL" the food below is included for "ONE" set price (no exceptions).
