I just wanted to give a shout out to a really yummy and super inexpensive new restaurant in East Van for Ethiopian eats.
Check out Axsum on the corner of Clark Dr. and E. Hastings.
Huge portions, fast service and really, really inexpensive. Four of us at for under $40 including beverages. Big parking lot with only daytime businesses that share it, so easy parking for dinner.
It's one of those new restaurants that's very good and not busy yet that I'd really like to see succeed. Check it out.
