One of the best Ethiopian restaurants I've been to was in South Orange, NJ. I was there for work, and had an hour to kill before the next train came to take me back to the city. Two blocks from the train station, was the best Ethiopian restaurant I had the pleasure of eating at outside of Adams Morgan, DC.

I remember buying a few of these Éthiopiques CDs back then. Mahmoud Ahmed comes to mind. Mustn't go check as my partner is asleep in the bedroom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 5:23pm northguineahills:

I'm a light sleeper, but my wife is a very heavy sleeper. I'd come home w/ friends while she was asleep, put on Merzbow or Richie Hawtin on full volume, and she'd have no clue the next morning. (wish I could sleep like that).

Talk of Ethiopian food reminds me that I want to try making my own injera with teff flour. I've just started experimenting with gluten-free sourdoughs.

well i might as well join this conversation: the one flaw of one of my two cats is that she will eat until she throws up... i have to let her eat for 2-3 minutes then go over and pet her and slow her down. i don't understand how she could not have learned not to do this by now, just for her own sake.

true. thank you.
and there's the archive. i just need to listen to it while it's still good sound quality, before it's only available as the pop-up player.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 9:01pm hyde:

Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 9:07pm tim abdellah:

Dammit. I'm being sucked into the World Series, which is pretty compelling. Catch up with ya in the archives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 9:08pm steve:

Gary do you have any nyc Ethiopian food recs?
Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 9:08pm Gary:

Happy Seriesing, Tim!
Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 9:09pm Gary:

It's been a long time since I've had any in New York, but I remember there was this great place in Brooklyn ... I'll try and Yelp it in a moment ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:10pm coelacanth∅:

howdy hyde!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:12pm coelacanth∅:

there used to be very good ethiopian places on the upper west side, but i'm talking decades ago. i'm totally out of touch with nyc now, even though i work within 45 minutes of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 9:13pm steve:

theres apparently a newish vegan ethiopian place somewhere in brooklyn, im curious how authentic that is.
Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 9:14pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:14pm northguineahills:

There's a decent place at MacDougal St & Minetta Ln in the Village.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 9:15pm steve:

thanks Gary!
Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 9:16pm Gary:

Bunna Cafe is the vegan place. I think the place I went to was Ghenet
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 9:16pm steve:

ok i just realized i went to Ghenet years ago... yeah it was really good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:18pm northguineahills:

I think it was called Meskerem. It's where I went when Addis came calling. It's not Adams Morgan good, but still plenty good.
Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 9:19pm Gary:

I think I've been to Meskerem, NGH, but years ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 9:21pm steve:

oh right yep that place is still there ngh, i work two blocks away... its so small on the outside and half underground i forget its even there. i did like it when i last ate there probably 5+ years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:27pm coelacanth∅:

this psyches me up. i'm a few electrical connections away from being able to listen to my (non-computer file) music collection again. if i stay up late i can listen to my Aster Aweke tapes tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:29pm coelacanth∅:

there are dj premiums and albums i won last marathon that i've never even listened to, because of technical difficulties.
Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 9:30pm Gary:

Y ... you got Aster Aweke t-t-tapes, C?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/25/17 9:30pm hyde:

@coel go for it! i miss my analog setup. hoping to get mine back up soon too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:38pm coelacanth∅:

...yeah, my volume control on my receiver would suddenly turn itself up - all the way! so i jammed a hunk of wood in there at 1/2 way up and only listen to sources that have their own output control. i still cannot afford to have it fixed, but i suddenly realized i could use my emergency back up amp if i ran the speaker wires through junction box, which i already owned. i just had to buy some rca connectors - which i just got in the mail. (so i have 2 amplifiers, hooked up to different components)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:39pm coelacanth∅:

Gary, just her first 2 albums. (direct from shanachie, back in the day)

Douuug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:57pm coelacanth∅:

i do not know why music from this region of the planet speaks to me so profoundly. it melts me.
if i could i'd go to ethiopia and maybe find out.
Avatar Wed. 10/25/17 9:58pm Doug Schulkind:

Been listening and lurking. So massively fantastic, Gary. Do they award Pulitzers to radio shows?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:58pm coelacanth∅:

ha, Doug! ("heartmelting"...yes.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/25/17 9:58pm Meghan:
