I emerged from a 45-minute nap and a shower saying, â€œI feel like a new woman!â€ And I did â€“ I was ready for action with my college BFF Stef and her boyfriend Jack (who, by the way, is the sweetest. man. ever â€“ besides Husband).
Jack and Stef suggested we go to a Ethiopian restaurant near Georgetown. I was totally game because 1) Iâ€™ve heard Ethiopian food is great vegetarian food and 2) a new culinary experience is always exciting!
The cool thing about Ethiopian food is there is no silverware â€“ all the food is picked up using a sponge-y bread called injera. Stef and I were a little confused when we sat down!
But the injera was really good and excellent for picking up the delicious entrees!
The entree was a cottage cheese dip with injera:
Stef and Jack were generous enough to order the sampler vegetarian entree so I could try a bunch of different things (they also got meat on the sideâ€¦ Iâ€™ll admit that it looked pretty good!). We shared this MASSIVE plate of goodies, which included lentils, cabbage, split peas, green beans, and collard greens.
I also tried an Ethiopian beer. It was good, just not stand-out.
We split these chocolate custards for dessert. They were delicious, but I think we were all expecting something more?
After dinner, Stef, Jack, and I walked around the Georgetown area until our feet started to hurt, and then we drove back to their side of town for after-dinner drinks.
Stef is a beer connoisseur and loves this one small bar called Galaxy Hut. Itâ€™s super eclectic and has an awesome beer selection of specialty brews. Plus, I loved the funky, artsy vibe.
Stef ordered my drinks for me. I had two very, very strong beers. 😉
I liked them both! Not sure what the second one was though â€“ some sort of Belgium ale?
College buddies are the best!
We ordered tater tots with cheese, too! Although the Ethiopian food was amazing, it just wasnâ€™t bar food.
And with that, my friends, I am off to bed! Jack has promised me blueberry pancakes in the morning (yayy!), and then Stef is taking me rock climbing at her gym. Iâ€™m so excited!
