Ethiopian food is found at Diablo and Sons through Sunday, Oct. 13 for Refugee Restaurant Week.

Food is one of the great communicators. Like other forms of expression such as art and music, a country's food can help expose people to new cultures, ideas and practices.

Boise has a blossoming food scene, and Refugee Restaurant Week, which runs until Sunday, Oct. 13, adds an entirely new dimension to the City of Trees. There are four local restaurants that bring in chefs from around the world to introduce their cuisines, and culture, with special menu items only available this week.

The STIL brought in a Syrian chef to create a Syrian-inspired ice cream, Somalian fare can be found at Grit 2C in Caldwell, Iraqi food is found at Grit's Ada County location in Eagle and Diablo and Sons is hosting an Ethiopian chef.

While the event only lasts the week, there are a number of refugee-owned shops and restaurants around the Treasure Valley, a list of which is found on the Idaho Office for Refugees' website
