Derae Restaurant

For a bit of the exotic, Derae Ethiopian Restaurant is sure to please. The dishes here are amazing. Most come served on top of a multitude of Ethiopian flatbreads which you use more or less as a scooper for your food. Crowd favorites here are the beef stew and the spicy chicken dish. While Gus’s is known for their fried chicken, Derae has some beautifully sautéed dishes. The ambiance here is pretty informal. With a beautiful olive green tones and a super spacious and clean diner, this restaurant is beautiful through and through. But the true winner here is all the wonderful dishes they prepare to order.

Arepa and Salsa

And to finish, let’s go with some great Hispanic food. While Arepa and Salsa mostly specializes in Colombian food — including an awesome fried plantain sandwich (the plantain serving as the bread) and some great empanadas—. you can still find all sorts of Latin American fare. The tacos here are wonderful, especially the shrimp tacos, and a beautiful Venezuelan hamburger. The ambiance is great as well, with interesting Hispanic movie posters and cute little flag toothpicks put into each dish symbolizing which country it comes from. If you’re looking for great Latin American food at great prices. Arepa and Salsa is worth a shot.
