I emerged from a 45-minute nap and a shower saying, “I feel like a new woman!” And I did – I was ready for action with my college BFF Stef and her boyfriend Jack (who, by the way, is the sweetest. man. ever – besides Husband).
Jack and Stef suggested we go to a Ethiopian restaurant near Georgetown. I was totally game because 1) I’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 – 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 side… I’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. It’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 – 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 wasn’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. I’m so excited!
