Is it time we ventured down Alfreton Road ? I think it probably is !
You can eat the world within a few blocks along this road and I thought for starters we could try Ethiopian. Have a squint at the exotic-looking fare on the menu here (http://www.habesharestaurantuk.co.uk/page3.html) (not the easiest link to read I'm afraid but you'll get an idea). Most main dishes 6 to 8 quid. Tripadvisor (http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g186356-d3186161-Reviews-Habesha-Nottingham_Nottinghamshire_England.html) is suitably impressed and I hear that their coffee is quite remarkable and well worth the 20 minute wait while they prepare it.
