Cheapskates Lunch - Barakah Cuisine

Another lunch, another country ...

Our most exotic venture so far, this lunch café run by the Somali Womens' Organisation sounds like it might be a real treat.  It only opens on a Friday and only between 12.30 and 1.30 so if we want to go that's when we have to go !  Rumour is they only have funding until December so I think it's best to get in quick.  Very limited information available which just adds to the excitement I think.  What I can tell you is it costs £3 and I expect the food to be similar to Ethiopian cooking (no, I thought that probably wouldn't help ;-)

Anyway, now you know as much as I do so if you're up for a culinary adventure then come along and join me.

Oh, and thanks to Kathryn Markham for the tipoff about this one.

    Update: I've had word back from SWO who say they can cater for a bigger group as long as they know in advance. Also, they would like a rough idea of the veg/non-veg split so if you could edit your RSVP for this it would be really helpful. Cheers.

    Jealous! I've had Ethiopian food a few times and it was great. Big sour pancakes with curry on top. Yum! Sadly I can't make it on a Friday though.
