I went to Addis with a friend for a lunch meeting. Â We talked about orphans and politics in Haiti. Lunch was good.
I was surprised to be the only customers in the restaurant at the time. Â We got there at 12pm and left at 1. Â No one came in that whole time. Â The food was very good and the very friendly owner chatted with us for a while about business.
They have several lunch specials options that go un-noticed because they do not advertise much. Â Most of the lunch specials are $10.95. Â It’s Ethiopian food, so you can eat with your hands. Â If you’ve washed them.
did you discuss the orphans simply because you were in a restaurant that served food originating from a third world country?
No, we discussed orphans because my meeting was with the director of an orphanage in Haiti. We happen to like Ethiopian food.
I was just curious. I used to work at an Ethiopian restaurant; this particular one that you reviewed, actually, and I found that people were more inclined to talk about poverty and orphans and charities they’re involved in when they came there. Could’ve been a coincidence, though I doubt it. So, the reason I asked you the subconscious reasoning behind your discussion is because I have always been curious as to why people felt the need to discuss these topics there.
I, too, am a big fan of Ethiopian food.
