This was actually my first encounter with Ethiopian food. I was a bit reluctant cause I often think must go to the respective country to sample their original cuisine. Welllll, I'm glad I tried the food anyway. Delectable and mouth watering. If you're in Kigali,...More

I love a great, authentic, local atmosphere... That is precisely what you find at Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant. Okay, so this is not my favorite cuisine ever, but I had to give it a shot because it is a Kigali mainstay and in the very cool...More
