Being that I've lived in Texas most of my life, and I've never been to Africa or anywhere that's even semi-close to Africa, I know you think I know nothing about African food. But when I lived in Austin, I used to go to this awesome Ethiopian restaurant all the time. A friend of a friend even said they saw Woody Harrelson eating there once. So take that! Sadly, the place is closed now, but I do have a suggestion if you're looking to chow down on some African...chow. Hit up the Taste of Africa Festival at 6 p.m. Sunday at SMU's Hughes-Trigg Student Center (6425 Boaz St.) and sample dishes from 12 African countries. Tickets are $15 for adults (with a discount for kids) and can be purchased at the door. For more information, visit dfwinternational.org.
