Al Dente Posted August 2, 2006 Share Posted August 2, 2006 Finding ourselves near Taqueria Poblano, we decided to stop in for an early dinner, but I had no idea they're closed on Tuesdays. We couldn't bear to get back into the hot car, so we headed across the street and had a pleasant surprise of a dinner at the Caboose Cafe. They're kind of a bakery, kind of a sandwich shop, and oddly enough, they do Ethiopian too.My wife's simple spinach and mozzarella panini was full of fresh good-quality ingredients and came with crisp roasted potato wedges dusted with spicy seasonings of some sort. Never having had Ethiopian outside of DC, I went ahead and ordered a combo platter of doro watt, zilzil tibbs, and beef alitcha along with some gomen and miser watt. It wasn't Etete, but it was pretty damn good.So if you're on that side of the bridge and don't want to haul your ass to U St, this warm friendly joint might just do the trick.
