Ethiopian food in Las Vegas
Our last stop on our way home from California was back in Las Vegas for the night. I found a little Ethiopian restaurant, Cottage Cafe, for us to try. We were even able to talk my mother-in-law and her friend into trying it out with us (they are often skeptical of what crazy foods we'll make them try next!). They were reluctant to join us, but were glad they did! I told them that eating Ethiopian food isn't just eating. It's an experience- one to share with your friends and family. On top of that, it's super cheap.
This cafe was empty when we got there, and isn't too pretty. Our waitress didn't speak English, and there were holes in the table cloths. But, the food made up for it, and the price was worth every penny. We ordered the vegetarian combo plus one other dish (I forget which one.. but it was the one that was not included with the combo), to split between the 4 of us. There was plenty of food, and we even had leftovers.. all for about $22! You can't beat that anywhere!
Oh, and by the way.. we stopped at Ronald's donuts on our way out the next morning, and stocked up on donuts for the ride home! I wish we had one of those here!
