Taste of Ethiopia - Southfield, MI (Groupon 1/16)

VTB Jan 16, 2011 08:01 AM

FYI --- jjspw says Taste of Ethiopia in Southfield, has the area's best Ethiopian food.
I've been wanting to try it, and lucky for me today's Groupon is $25 value for $10. (it will be my first play with this high tech Groupon thing
)Hopefully I'll be reporting back in a couple weeks.

    I also bought the Groupon for ToE; my 3rd buy from Groupon. A few days ago they had a deal
    for A Matter of Taste. Hope it works out well!

      Bought one myself. I've been there before and remember how good it is.

          As did I. I've only bought one other Groupon for Atlas Global Bistro and that was an excellent deal!! Maybe we will see you all there!

              It was back in early November if I remember correctly. I watch it daily that one pushed me over the edge!!

                  Well...I missed that one. I printed mine out last night after writing the above comment. I purchased mine on November 12th. I can't believe I missed the second one. I was talking to the owner of Topz Burger in B'ham who had a recent Groupon. He was telling me that the business gets half of the Groupon amount for each coupon and Groupon keeps the rest. For example...the $ 20.00 Groupon for Atlas worth $ 40 ..Atlas only keeps $10 of it. I'm sure they do it exposure but it doesn't seem like much of a deal for the restaurant!

            Sadly, I missed this Groupon. :-(

            And yes, Taste of Ethiopia (the Southfield location, NOT the Detroit one) is my pick over Blue Nile or that newish Ethiopian place out in Canton/Plymouth.

            But recently, I found some excellent Ethiopian in Windsor, if anyone is ever on that side of the border:
            Addis Ethiopian Restaurant
            325 Wyandotte St
            Windsor, ON N9A 5X3
            (519) 971-8437

              Bummer. I missed the Groupon coupon, too, but I do like Taste of Ethiopia, although the food presentation and ambiance isn't quite as nice as the Blue Nile (especially the Ann Arbor location). However, I'm highly sensitive (allergic?) to peppers, so TOE is my only choice for Ethiopian food.
