j/k. that's one cuisine i haven't tried yet. there's an ethiopian joint a few blocks down 9th ave from my building. is there something typical, special, or something to look for with their cuisine, frank?
We always have it served family style, everything on a platter and you share. Typically we get a meat entree and a veggie platter.

You get to eat with your hands... wheeee....

Glad you had a great birthday, Alix! Hopefully the cake won't run too fast.

I wish you folks were here. You could have helped me eat them. I always end up eating too many of those little critters. Then, I stay up half the night with the feeling that they are swimming around inside my belly.

Yup, and there's that funny rolled up bread.

It's just plain good food served with in an interesting way and, if I remember correctly, the seasoning is a bit unique.

Injera is the bread. Kind of a fermented pancake from teff flour.

They brought around coffee to the tables yesterday, that is not normal. I had mine and Kathleen's. Little burst of energy last night to get some things done round the house.
