Lets go eat with our hands

Anyone want to eat with their hands? Thinking of going to Ethiopian Famous Restaurant for next meetup. But before i set a date i want to have input as to which day to go to the restaurant. So tell me when you want to go on the week of the 27th of May( last week of month) or first week in June whichever is better for everyone. Ultimately i want to try to have a meetup every other week or more. So let me know when you want and at end of next week will make the meetup. Until then please no one RSVP . Once the date i set then anyone that is available on that day can RSVP. Thanks

    Good time had by all that attended. Started with a wonderful coffee ceremony where coffee beans were roasted right in front of us and then ground and made into a very strong coffee resembling espresso. The food was delicious. Because it was such a small group we ordered a few items off the menu and shared. One of us was vegetarian and there was a great selection of vegetarian meals too. Everything was flavorful, using traditional recipes and spices from the owners home country, Ethiopia. A few of the dishes had a little bit of a kick using berbere, and Ethiopian hot pepper. Everything was just delicious.

    Well we had a great time tonight. Started with a traditional coffee ceremony of roasting the beans and ended with the coffee, very strong like an espresso and popcorn, which is traditional accompaniment. Only six of us showed up tonight so we just share a few items. All of the meat dishes, lamb and beef were so delicious and flavorful. They used traditional recipes and traditional spices and the berbere, which is Ethiopian pepper, to flavor the meats and other dishes to perfection. All of the food is ate with injera, a spongy bread that is used to pick up the food and eat with hands.

    Everyone left with a full stomach, a smile on their face and wanting to come back again to try more food. Definitely one to come back to and recommend.

    Wayne and foodies: I am still sick with sore throat, etc. Went to dr today, I have a bacterial infection but not strep. I am now on antibiotics after 9 days of a very severe sore throat. Think I may have waited too long. Anyway, I will not be able to join this time either. See ya next time. Have fun, I know you will.

    Looking at what people said here and what they said last night at the meetup at Taste of Caribbean Thursday seemed like a good day to have this meetup. So 6:30 on Thursday 23rd.

    Hey, how come 6 of you "RSVPd" when Wayne said NOT TO? Duhhhhh?

    Both week of May 27, and first week of June are fine for me. I prefer not on Tuesdays, cos I go bike riding with another MeetUp to work off my ethnic eating.

  • Julia

    Mondays, Wed, Thurs good for me. NOT weekend nights or holiday weekend, cos I go camping. This goes for ANY dinner. Also restaurants are less crowded and more able to accommodate larger groups, than on weekend nights.

    Oops, didn't read your second notice before my previous message, I now know where the location is. I can go the week of the 27th every evening except Friday and Saturday. If the consensus comes down to Friday, I may be able to change those plans also.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
