The Survey
There are
155
total restaurants collected from all over the Internet. I had some fun and called every single one and asked them one simple question:

What are your top 3 dishes?

My Findings
Chicken Kabob ranks #1
@Chicken Kabob
is by far the #1 most popular dish. At first, this struck me as odd as I never expected Afghan food to be known for its chicken kabob. I also suspected something was wrong with the survey. Nonetheless, with a
155
restaurant sample size, the data aggregate solves for outliers. So, Chicken Kabob leads by an insane margin!

Mantu is (a distant) fourth place
Mantu is proverbially the most popular Afghan dish among Afghans — and you don’t have to be Afghan to know this. You’d probably expect it to be the most ordered dish at any restaurant, but it isn’t. It isn’t even second place. It ranks as a distant fourth.

I have a few theories that explains why this is. I recommend by Alexandra Logue, as it goes into some deep psychology behind why we like the foods we do.
What about flaws in the survey?
I asked for the top three dishes. This way, we can average out any flaws in the data. Also, the chart is a sum of all three answers. In other words, Chicken Kabob ranks as number one because it was mentioned as one of the top three. This doesn’t mean it was always a restaurant top choice. Although, if you look at the data, it actually does rank as most restaurant’s number one; but that’s beside the point.
