We met LeeLee (aka Kailee) for supper on Saturday night. I’d spent lots of time trying unsuccessfully to think of a fun restaurant for dinner on Friday night and then it was easy as pie once I thought of LeeLee – Ethiopian it was. I had only to mention that we’d be eating with our hands for Reid to love the idea. The spiciness of the little piles of stew-like foods was also pleasing to her palate. Damien, who hadn’t been tempted by the other foods we offered, tried a few of the foods on the platter and especially liked the collard greens. Before supper came, LeeLee and Reid had the following conversation:
LeeLee: Where did you go today?
Reid: We went to a hotel.
LeeLee: Where did you go after the hotel?
Reid: To another hotel.
Me: Where did we go between the hotels?
Reid: The zoo.*
LeeLee: What did you see at the zoo?
LeeLee: What kind of animals?
Reid: Zoo animals.
At this point LeeLee gave up, laughing. Reid is not usually taciturn. Ken – yes; Reid – definitely not
If ever you’re in Toronto, I’d recommend Lalibela at 869 Bloor Street West. The five of us shared two vegetarian platters, drank glasses of water and paid only $23.00 for supper. Kailee is going to take us to a Persian restaurant next time. I’m looking forward to it.
*I provided a few more details of our trip to the zoo.
