A surprise to us, when we moved to Ithaca from DC years ago, was the absence of Ethiopian restaurants.
In DC, they are common. What do you want tonight, Chinese, Thai, Ethiopian? Casual, inexpensive places.
Now, it seems, the void has been filled, at least a little, with the presence of an Ethiopian food vendor at the Congo Square Market.
The Market is a neighborhood enterprise at the Southside Community Center on Plain Street, held every Friday.
The Market starts at 4 p.m. The Ethiopian food goes fast, we hear, so get there early. Then let us know how it is. We work Friday afternoon - evening. We might have to take a personal day soon.
