There’s a first time for everything right? Well.. this was my first Ethiopian food. If you are new to this, different kinds of stew fish, meat, lamb,chicken , fish or vegetable are served on top of injera, a large sourdough flat bread. You then take a pience of injera and fold some meat or stew of your choice wrap it and eat it using your hands.
I had a great experience. Great music, great food – There’s so much culture at this restaurant. Very authentic. We ordered a little bit of everything. Meat, chicken, fish and vegetable but I preferred the meat and vegetable.

One of the best Mexican places I’ve been to. Even though I’ve only been here three times, it is
something I would go back to Boston for. Their guacamole is amazing and made fresh in front of you. I’ve also had their enchaladas and since its usually what I get at a Mexican restaurant, let me tell you that Papagayo’s enchiladas is one of the best I’ve had. I never have left overs!
It is a great place to have a classic margarita especially after a long day at work
Helmand is an Afghani restaurant named after Afghanistan’s longest and most important river. Located in East Cambridge, the Helmand Restaurant’s dining room is flanked on one side by a small fireplace, and on the other by a woodburning oven, where the restaurant’s famous flatbread is cooked.
This restaurant is very classy and authentic. I tried their sweet potato, yam for appetizer but I can’t seem to find that on their website anymore. For my main course I had, Lamb Lawand -Leg of Lamb sauteed with onion, tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms, fresh cilantro, yogurt and spices served with sauteed spinach and challow rice. It was very flavorful and filling ( in a good way).
I probably find myself here almost every weekend morning after a long night. I get their breakfast food and their grilled cheese! I don’t know what they do to their grilled cheese but it’s to die for!I even eat it for breakfast. I’ve tried a lot of their eggs, omelettes that are on their menu and some of their specialty like their fresh banana and caramel french toast.
