After craving Ethiopian food for the past couple of weeks and making several unsuccessful attempts at cajoling friends to join me for some spongy bread (otherwise known as injera), I finally found a taker. Thank you, Dianna (aka The Budget Babe), for making my day!
We headed to Laliebela, my favorite little Ethiopian restaurant on Temple Street in New Haven. I've eaten here several times for dinner and enjoyed the casual yet intimate atmosphere, attentive service, and the food. For lunch, the setting is a little more informal as we learned there is just buffet service, but at $7.95 per person, you can really get your money's worth. So, if you've never experienced Ethiopian food, this is a good way to get a sample, as well as an affordable and satisfying lunch.
