I've been threatening to try Ethiopian for a while now, and with my mom in town it seems like the perfect excuse. She is a vegetarian (eats seafood and dairy/eggs, no poultry or red meats) and we will be dining with a group. I understand that Ethiopian is served family style, so I am wondering if we would be better off going to a strictly vegetarian (or in Rahel's case, vegan) restaurant or if we have enough tasty meatless options at Nyala.
Both restaurants have been recommended to me and by the boards here, but if someone has a third option that is better I'd love to here it. Basically I wonder if we are really limiting our meal options by going to a non-veggie place, or if it doesn't really matter. My mom is not a vegan and is not super-picky about things like having a meat entree on the same platter as the veggie one, but I thought it would be easier to avoid it.
Thanks in advance! Let me know what you think is best: Rahel, Nyala, or other?
