Respond to Review of CLOSED: Makeda
Review: Makedas is a VERY expensive Ethiopian place. Unlike most Ethiopian cafes around the country where a very filling meal will cost between $5-10; Makedas will break your bank. But if you can erase the notion of Ethiopian style beans costing double digit dollars, then it can be a great place. Makedas has great green bean app, Loubia. The veg dinners are all vegan, but there are only 5. 5 entrees, which when ordering is like choose 3 for your dinner. The rest of the extensive menu is meat. It is not really in line with the terms of listing a non-veg place, in my opinion. I have had service issues here. We were ignored for 30 minutes before we left without a goodbye or where are you going, can we help you. Ethiopian food is inherently inexpensive, esp for vegans. Beans are cheap!!! These beans aren't og, nor are the veggies, yet they charge a premium for it. If you go to any real Ethiopian place in the country it will be $7 at most for just as delicious food. Like Thai and Indian food that is not especially veggie, any run of the mill Ethiopian can suit a vegan, but it isn't otherwise especially vegan-friendly... Makeda means table, which they have in the cafe. Novel, but not buying that decor as such is worth that much for beans. BEANS!!! Non-og BEANS!!!!
