Hey loves! So I’m a little behind posting on Valentines day, so forgive me, but I can’t not post about this!
My V-tine surprised me with a trip to “The Nile” ,a local Ethiopian restaurant. I’d never had Ethiopian food, so naturally, I was practically jumping up and down.
In the interest of not annoying every person at the restaurant, I limited my picture taking, but I did sneak in this one. (Sorry it’s such low quality. I didn’t drag my camera with me)
I got a plate with a sample of 5 of the vegetarian/vegan entrees. Oh my goodness, these were SO good! It included:
Split lentil sauce made with flavorful berbere-based seasoning
Azifa (whole lentil salad) —
Whole lentils cooked and mashed, seasoned lime juice and mustard
Ater Kik Alicha
Yellow split peas cooked in mildly flavored sauce, seasoned with garlic and ginger
There were two other dishes that I don’t remember 🙁 Sorry! One of them was an eggplant dish served cold, and one was a warm potato dish!
All of the food is served on Injera, which is like a spongy bread, and you use it to pick up the food (so there are no utensils involved) which is so fun! Not to mention, everything was delicious! I think my favorite was the Ater Kik Alicha!
Have you ever had Ethiopian food?
P.S. Don’t forget, this is the last day to enter my PB2 Giveaway!
