What is Ethiopian Food?
Injera, traditional Ethiopian bread, is the foundation of most Ethiopian food. Nearly all Ethiopian cuisine is served on injera. We use injera to eat almost everything, and we eat with our right hand. Proper form is to tear a small piece of injera and use it to pick up different stews (wot) using a pinching motion. Ethiopian cuisine offers different flavors and tastes depending on the region that you’re sampling from. At Messob Ethiopian, our menu of Ethiopian cuisine features beef, chicken, vegetarian, fish, and lamb options.
