I had an amazing weekend in general, but the food quality put me weekend over the top! HM and I started the weekend off at a modern Asian restaurant called Plum Alley. They offer really amazing and unique dishes. The pork buns were consumed so quickly I couldn't even snap a picture. I was able to snag you sweets a picture of our favorite dish though- the pickled veggies.
I capped the meal off with my favorite Gelato. It was Cookies and Mint flavor.
I remember when I went to Dubrovnik, Croatia there was a Gelato place on every corner. At the time I remember thinking how over-rated I thought Gelato was. Maybe this is the only Gelato I like?!?!
The weekend culminated in another amazing meal. We were on a roll and decided to try another new restaurant. It was Sunday and after driving around downtown looking for a place that was open Sundays (Thanks a lot SLC), we decided to try this new Ethiopian place. HM and have only had Ethiopian food once during a vacation to Chicago. We loved it! We have been looking for a place here in SLC, but there was only one in a sketchy part of town. With this new one close to home, we will DEFINITELY be back!!!
I know for many of you, this may look very scary. Trust me when I say that it is delicious will you? If you have never been, let me explain. We ordered the combo platter. It had spicy beef stew, non-spicy beef, split peas, hummus (or what I call hummus), spicy lentils, home made feta, green beans, cabbage, collard greens, and tomato salad. It is served on a platter and you are given fermented bread (taste like sourdough) with which you rip off small pieces to scoop up food with.
Again, it was amazing. Now I just need to find excuses to go back. HM and tried to think which of our friends would be brave enough to go back with us. We think we know who we can convince. One of you sweets will be hearing from us soon!
A lot more happened this weekend, including the Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, a Grace Potter concert, and some hikes with dog, The food was the most exciting though!
Have you Sweets ever had Ethiopian food?
