Mucho love for the tacos here done "Nick's Way". Nick's way isn't the only way but it's the best way. Fried crispy shells... but the story took a dark left turn for me. I sat in one of the circular red booths waiting for my tacos and noticed the full bar across from the taco counter. I suddenly found myself in the deja vu twilight zone. I knew I had never been to Nick's before, but there was a hazy memory I couldn't put my finger on involving Angelo F, Lisa C, live music and large quantities of alcohol. After leaving and walking around the building I realized this place was a taco joint by day and a Rouge nightclub by night. During the day on the weekends it's both with a full bar with plasma TVs showing the game on one side and awesome food things on the other. Oh happy day! When the sports bars around the corner are packed and I'm in the neighborhood you'll find me here munching on delicious tacos, sipping cocktails and watching the game. Score!

PHEW! I feel SO MUCH better about the state of Ethiopian food in the City now, especially when it comes to proximity to my house. I was worried that Axum ( http://www.rateclubs.com/bi...), perfectly passable though it is, was going to have to be my go-to option for Ethiopian food. I imagined myself in there eating the perfectly fine vegetarian platter, all the while dreaming of the deliciously oily Yemesir Wot at Addis ( http://www.rateclubs.com/bi...), wistfully pulling at my Injera and ordering another bottle of honey wine. I'm happy to report, however, that this need not be so. Club Waziema is only a little further away for me, and well worth the extra block or two. I split the vegetarian platter with some friends, as well as a bottle of honey wine. The food had MUCH more flavor than at Axum, and the lentils were red and oily with a little bit of spice, just the way I like it. Portions are generous and well-priced, as ought to be expected from Ethiopian food. The bar atmosphere really works well for this place. The crowd/scene is mellow but jovial, the communal vibe is heightened by the funky ambiance and the sharing of platters eaten by hand. I couldn't really see myself coming here just for drinks, but that's more because it's impossible for me to be around delicious food and not, like, eat it. This place makes me feel like I can put off my East Bay move now (yes, I was seriously considering moving to the East Bay just because of the food, don't judge me!)
