Merkato - Vegas Off The Strip

When people think of Vegas they think of all the glitz and glamour. Sometimes I just want good food without breaking the bank. One of my guilty pleasures is Merkato, an Ethiopian restaurant. Each dish is under $10 and they have generous portions. You can easily walk out of there with a bill less than $50 for 4 people and be full!It was here that I discovered one of the most delectable Ethiopian spices that packed a punch. They sell the spice next door at the market. Unfortunately the quantities are pretty big so I have yet to pick up some for home. Rest assured that I always ask for an extra dish of the spices to kick everything up a notch.

The dish that I always have is the Kitfo, which is completely raw meat. It is usually mixed with a lot of spices. For those who are not quite ready for a raw dish, they do offer to sear it or cook it to your liking. As for me, raw please! I am usually the only one who consumes this dish, but it is one of my favorites.

Can't wait to be back in Vegas this weekend and get my fill again of Ethiopian food at Merkato. Eating with your hands hasn't been more fun.

Merkato's was rather tasty the last time I went, but with Ethiopian cuisine I usually stick to vegetarian fare... since it already is so tasty and I'd imagine meat to be a scarcity or a luxury item there.

While looking at the scheduel on my desktop, I notice that it's less than 20 days away from the Christmas. Time is up to prepare a gift for my girlfriend and family. Last year, the winter is so cold, I just bought her several [url=http://www.aniub.com]UGG boots[/url] to warm her feet. But now my beautiful and slim wife deserved more than before! I decide to give her a big pleasantly surprised, She love the high heel shoes so much, may be this is my best choice,[url=http://www.clpumps.com]Christian Louboutin[/url] is a popular brand in recent years, the red high heels can make a girlfriend looks much more sexy, the special design and its high-quality raw materials also attract my eyes. The price may be a little expensive, how ever, it's worth the value. The high-heel shoes are favorites of ladies because the shoes adorn their legs, especially for the ladies whose legs are short. Maybe people usually saw high-heel shoes in the nightclubs 30 years ago, but now high-heel shoes help ladies a lot on dress up, no matter what you dress, it looks beautiful when you are wearing a pair of high-heel shoes and will attract men's eyes. The red sole design of Christian Louboutin is very beautiful,especially the [url=http://www.clpumps.com/Discount%20Christian%20Louboutin-pumps_c15]Christian Louboutin Pumps[/url], it is also a sign of the Christian Louboutin for about 20 years, but the one I have booked at a online Christian Louboutin shop is red and black, it looks very graceful and special, I think my girlfriend should like it very much when she see open the gift box. Well, you know, the Christmas holiday is a good time for dating, next year maybe I will buy diamond ring, but this year Christian Louboutin is the best Christmas gift. What about your gifts for your girlfriends or the other people?
