Forget impressions from heart-rending TV pleas about Ethiopia -- Tempe's Blue Nile shows that food is one of the finest things about the African nation. Vegetables and legumes abound, made luscious with slow simmering into spicy stews. Chicken, beef and shrimp shine, too, wrapped burrito-like in tangy, homemade injera bread.
This place has pretty fantastic food. My personal favourite is the vegan combo plate- 5 vegetable dishes (of your choice) with injera. This is a great place for both vegans/vegetarians & carnivores to enjoy a meal together (that doesn't happen too often).
Blue Nile Cafe is probably one of my favorite places to eat. The food is so good that I can't stop eating it. The Gored Gored is great (even when ordered raw). The vegetables are great, you can't go wrong with the spicy chickpeas or the carrots and potatoes. The chicken atkilt and chicken tebbs are both delicious.

The above-mentioned beef dish is cooked with tomatoes, onions, garlic, and ginger, while tender yedor watt, a chicken entree, dazzles with... More »
Sometimes we enjoy escaping daily craziness to this charming little cafe stuffing ourselves with delightful kik alitcha (warm yellow split peas simmered in a mild sauce of onion, herbs and spices), and tebbs (tender sautéed chopped beef in a sauce flavored with onion, tomatoes, green chile, seasoned butter and spices).We choose to sit in the traditional Ethiopian section of the restaurant, on intricately carved, swaybacked wooden stools, about half a foot high, clustered around a...

Look out, Lalibela. For the first time since it opened almost five years ago, the little restaurant should be peering over its shoulder at competition for the Ethiopian dining market. About two months back, Blue Nile Cafe debuted just a few... More »
