Fresno has an Ethiopian restaurant

I have never had Ethiopian food before and when I saw this, I thought I would give it a try. It was a great experience. Easy to find, great service, reasonable prices. It smelled SO GOOD when we walked in the door. I didn't love the injera, but I love eating with my fingers, lol. Its not that the injera was bad, I just personally didn't care for the flavor. Its definitely worth trying if you love to try new and different things. We had 4 options off the vegan menu, and a chicken dish. The spicy dishes were spicy enough to give it all great flavor, even if you tend to like your spicy dishes a little hotter. Everything was great. If you've never had Ethiopian before, it is similar in some ways to Indian. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you're an adventurous eater.

Where does a foodie eat in Fresno?

I took my kids down to Fresno (we live in Oakhurst) to go to the Met and experience a little culture. I wanted to take my kids out for tapas. I make it at home all the time, but they've never had it in a restaurant. We tried La Paella... closed, so we tried Flamenco... closed. Senses, Pangea... the story was the same everywhere we went: out of business. After giving up on tapas I decided to try an Indian bistro, Masala. It was closed too!!! We ended up having to eat at Panda Express because we had already spent almost 2 hours trying to find a good place to eat. Sad, huh? Is there anywhere left in Fresno to get small plate? If not, does anyone have any other recommendations for European fusion? Please help me find some good food in Fresno. Thank you.
