Ethiopian meals are eaten without utensils from a communal plate, which is first covered with pieces of a flatbread called injera. You fold each bite up in a piece of bread. Exotic lamb stews and spicy vegetables are the favorite orders at Blue Nile on the Southwest side. Coffee lovers won't want to miss the remarkable Ethiopian coffee ceremony.

The service is good and it's nice inside despite not looking so wonderful from the outside. I need to go there more often, now that I think about it!
I had tried Ethiopian food for the first time about a year and a half ago and I have to say this is the best one in town. Tina at Blue Nile is the sweetest woman as well and is always very gracious to all of her customers. This place has been around for about 10 years and have one-of-a-kind lamb dish....makes my mouth water!
Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant Once the only Ethiopian eatery in town, Blue Nile now has some stiff competition.
