    Throughout the year, Jalalabad has variety of fruits in the market. Autumn and winter: banana, orange called "kino". Summer and spring: melon, watermelon, mango, grape. The price is very cheap. All the fruits are ripen from the trees and most of them are brought from Pakistan.

    So easy for me to make fresh natural fruit juice during the hot season: ice cube and mixed fruits blender them all and put it in the refrigerator! YUMMY! No additive or preservative.

    Salar Burger, why not to try?

    by Anastasia73 Written Aug 5, 2008

    There are very many sound-western-restaurant - burger, pizza, juice - in the city but most of them are (afghan) burger. It is not really burger like "usual" one but more like flat afghan bread (nan) with chips, boiled egg, little bit meat, and fresh salad.

    In every restaurant, there are two style of dining rooms:
    Men's dining room - only for men and usually it is a room with windows to enjoy the view outside or could be situated in a nice terrace.
    Women's dining room - for women only, is in a close room with no access to enjoy the view. This dining room is also used for family

    2nd floor restaurant

    by Wanderboy43 Updated Nov 11, 2003

    Jalalabad just didn't seem to have good food (unless you love greasy kebabs), though the restaurant at our hotel had good chicken (and Kebabs, of course), but also a great dessert. Chatt is the name and it's so good: it has fruit, like apples in a carbonated sweet yogurt.

Jalalabad Warnings and Dangers

  • Anastasia73's Profile Photo

    by Anastasia73 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Apart from international staff work for INGOs or UN agencies, as far as I know there is no single traveller interested to discover Jalalabad yet. The number of international staff non UN are 35 persons only until the moment I built my webpage.
    Threat of kidnapping especially to foreigners, suicide bombers, rocket missiles done by Taliban, Al-Qaeda, or other terrorists are always highly possible.

    "Complete" travel insurance include helicopter evacuation may be necessary.

    Loser trio

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The loser in the middle insisted I take his photo, which I did to get rid of him (digital camera).
    This was after he pushed some curious kids away from us.

Jalalabad What to Pack

    Burqas in many colour

    by Anastasia73 Written Aug 6, 2008

    Luggage and bags: Muslim style clothing for women for summer season: sjaal is a must to cover the head, baggy clothes no tight clothes, "european style winter clothes", "punjabi" style, if possible "chadari" or "burqa".
    For (young) man: jeans, t-shirt, ... but afghan style man clothing is preferable.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sport shoes, sandal, slippers, socks

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring your own complete medical supplies. Indeed there are many local pharmacists in the city but rely on your own.
