What's really good at Cafe Lalibela? The wat, of course. No, that's not the beginning of an Abbott and Costello routine. The "wat" in question is the traditional Ethiopian stew -- lamb, beef, fish, vegetarian, and so on. It's served with tons of spongy, flat injera bread, and eaten the old-fashioned way -- with your digits, bub. And believe us, there's a whole lot of finger lickin' on your way to a full belly. Lalibela also has some tasty Ethiopian coffees, teas, wines and beers to make it all slide down your gullet, and for dessert, there's house-made tiramisu, and other sweets. If you're not a fan of Ethiopian food yet, you will be after your first meal at Lalibela.
