A little bit of Africa in Texas

It is my opinion that one of the fabulous things about traveling is eating.  But...what is more fun than going to a new place and trying out new restaurants?  Going to a new place and trying out new restaurants with old friends!  Jay and I were recently in Austin, TX.  While there, we met up with some of our favorite Montana friends who happened to be in Texas at the same time.  Perfect.

Going on a recommendation from a local (the best way to choose a meal in a new city), we decided upon a little hole-in-the-wall place right off the interstate in downtown Austin,  Aster's Ethiopian Restaurant   Honestly, without the recommendation I doubt we'd have looked twice at this place.  Sad, but true. A big fan of both cooking and eating African food, I found this place to be a delight with it's down to earth atmosphere and amazingly fragrant, spicy fare.  Yum!!!!  If you ever find yourself in the Austin area, mosey on over to Aster's for a great lunch. :-)
