    POSTVILLE, Iowa - Nearly three months after a federal immigration raid uprooted almost 400 employees at a meatpacking plant in northeastern Iowa, dozens of Somali immigrants are slowly but steadily filling the depleted ranks left by the arrested workers.

    Along Postville's main street, in a storefront that used to hold a mattress store, a dozen Somali men ate dinner and chatted on a recent evening. Some members of the Somali community are renting the room and hope to turn it into a restaurant, said Sadiq Abdi.

    "They want a place where we can eat Somali food and just to be," he said.
    Welcome to America, friends! It's great to have you here! :)
    OPEACHMENT NOW!!!

    My biggest complaint about moving here has been the lack of ethnic cuisine (although we have a local taco joint that is incredible). Hooray for the Somalis!

    We do have some. There are places that serve real German food, as well as Mexican (not Taco Bell), Italian (not Olive Garden), Grecian, and Bosnian. But no good middle-eastern cuisine. Somali is different, but still closer than Greek.
