‘Martha Stewart’ has been curious to try African cuisine for an eternity and a day. But I’ve procrastinated until now as…I was just not that keen. Call me narrow minded, but I just didn’t think it would be nice!
But it would be selfish of me if all our foodie adventures were dictated by my food preference. So it was convenient when I found a Groupon voucher for Ethiopian food at Jambo Jambo.
We were joined by the Mongolian and my other bff. In the course of explaining to my other bff how we came to eat at this Ethiopian joint, it came to light that when that when ‘Martha Stewart’ said she wanted African food, she meant Moroccan food. >.<”
We noticed that the table next to us were handed towels to wipe their hands. Both ‘Martha Stewart’ and my other bff were a bit cut that this wasn’t also offered to us. Perhaps this was because we were on a Groupon deal, but it would have been handy to clean our hands given we had to use our hands to eat.
At this stage, none of us were too impressed. The servings were quite small – each pile of food in the photo is a main which ordinarily costs $25. Yet despite the size, we still didn’t wipe the plate clean, cos well….
Jambo Jambo is probably the most adventurous foodie adventure for ‘Martha Stewart’ and I, and although it’s probably safe to say that none of us will be back in a while, it’s always good to try something different once in a while.
