Ahh totally forgot to mention that we got ourselves on another dang ole list last month. @timeoutnewyork gave us a spot on their top 100 restaurants in NYC. Enamesegenalen! -------- Need a new date night spot? Some might tell you differently, but we think eating with our hands from a shared bed of injera, is the perfect way to build intimacy. @bunnacafe is #25 on our newest #TimeOutEatList. At this vegetarian Ethiopian charmer, you’ll get a spread of traditional bites, including red lentils in berbere sauce, mashed split peas simmered with tomato, and a chickpea stuffing with kale.

We ditched the honey in our baklava and made a shai and bunna - infused turbinado syrup instead. Rich and delish. Guaranteed to put you over the edge if the feast for 2 had not already. And of course, always available as part of your @caviar delivery order. Everything is eshi.
Wait what does Bunna mean? Coffee. And your restaurant's name is Bunna Cafe? Yep. Wait so basically your restaurant is Coffee Coffee? ........... Yep. Repeat conversation 3x per week.
