A little lacking

WE stopped into the Blue Nile in Kensington on Sunday. I had been to the Marathon a couple blocks down before and loved it. The Blue Nile was pretty well empty, except for one other couple.

Kind of cute inside, with lots of pictures & artwork. We ordered some bevvy’s, and an appetizer. The service was actually pretty fast considering most Ethiopian places are pretty slow.

But, the injera was cold, not nice and warm like I’ve had at The Marathon or Langano Skies. It’s flavour was okay, but it was missing texture; I think it was made with white flour instead of the genuine teff flour.

The server was kind of rude, he kind of just sat there at the bar and bossed the women in the kitchen around while staring down the guests. Then someone else came out from the kitchen and took our order. When the platter came out, it was scarcely filled with food, and the cold, white injera was kind of flopped in a basket alongside. The lentils and peas were kind of bland, the spinach kind of watery.

This was not enough to feed 4 people, I think it would have better been suited to 2.

After finishing our beers we asked for some water, and they just came out and filled our already used (mine with beer residue) glasses up with water.

We got up to leave and left a tip on the table, which the man “server” immediately bounced up out of his chair and yelled out what we had given for a tip. I wasn’t sure if he was excited or mad.

lacking in flavour, not enough food
