Ethiopia is widely considered to be the cradle of civilization -- where humans first roamed the earth. Three meals per day over thousands of years means they've had plenty of opportunities to master their culinary craft. Taste the anthropological difference at Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant in South Orange: Drop $12 and get $30 to spend on food and drink Monday to Wednesday or $15 for $30 to spend Thursday to Saturday. A far cry from Addis Ababa, this traditional resto still offers Ethiopian fare for carnivores and vegans alike. Try the veggie samosas (with seasoned green lentils), Lalibela tibs (specialty beef cubes marinated and sautéed in olive oil), or the shimbra asa (chickpea dumplings sautéed in red onion). Make sure your distinctly human opposable thumbs are ready because you won't need forks and knives for this fare.
