When I say "your leg," of course, I mean "my leg" because Mrs. HowChow wouldn't eat a sandwich that dripped on her leg. But I stopped at Mimi's Kabob while driving home from errands. I ordered the chicken kabob, and the sauce started to drip as I munched on the ride home.
The Mimi's Kabob passes the test: I wiped off my jeans, but then took another bite as I pulled into the neighborhood. Juicy white-meat chicken. Crisp, warm tandoori bread. Vegetables, and a creamy, slightly cheesy sauce that really made a terrific sandwich (and which cleaned up easily).
Mimi's is a casual Afghan restaurant along the lines of Columbia's Maiwand Kabob. Appetizers like aushuk, bowlani and pumpkin. A clay oven to create tandoori bread. A menu that runs through chicken, beef, and lamb kabobs and ends with a few Afghan desserts like rice pudding or custard. At lunch, there are even pizza and sandwiches.
This is a friendly place. When I didn't want a soda, they let me swap out the drink for some pumpkin in the lunch special. The pumpkin was good, although less tender than Maiwand Kabob. Mimi's actually has more seating that the Columbia Maiwand Kabob.
If you like kabobs, check out Maiwand Kabob in Columbia or Parsa Kabob in Elkridge. If you are in Clarksville, definitely check out Great Sage for vegetarian food or El Azteca for Mexican.

NEAR: This is a block south of Rte 32 on Rte 108. It is a shopping center on the east side of Rte 108, and the entry is from a side street, so you need to turn just south of the shopping center. This is a great place to stop if you have been shopping at Roots Markets farther north on Rte 108.
