Yummy!

We heard Ethiopian food was popular in the area and decided we would give it a try. Luckily we love spicy food! We took our teenage sons with us, and we worried about their response. One enjoyed it and the other wouldn't try it (wimp, haha). The taste and the spices were exotic. I really... read more

I have never had Ethiopian cuisine. Neither has any of my family. However, we were all feeling adventurous enough to give it a try. I am glad we did. The day we went to the restaurant we were the only American people there. Everybody else was Ethiopian. However, the people made us feel welcome and we were relaxed and ready... More
