Abyssinian Food.

Anybody ever had it? What's it like? I looked at a menu from an Abyssinian restaurant and didn't understand hardly any of it.

Isn't that basically Ethiopian cuisine?

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 1Last Thursday at 8:20 AM

Try the veal.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 2Last Thursday at 8:21 AM

R1 yes.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 3Last Thursday at 2:40 PM

Don’t eat the meat: stick with the veggies to be safe

Injura bread makes a lovely, rejuvenating facial mask.

Former? have you been adopted DO? Praise be!

I like injara bread by itself. Maybe with a schmear of marmite for the complete culinary culture fuck.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 7Last Thursday at 3:27 PM

To be avoided if you only want to eat with fork and knife.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 8Last Thursday at 4:07 PM

The spongy injera bread isn't my favorite and nor is the mushy bean/vegetable dishes that go with it. I.e. I don't like it.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 9Last Thursday at 4:10 PM

I don't know why they don't call it Ethiopian food. It's very different for Western palates, but it can be very good.

But it can also be very spicey - like burn your mouth.

"didn't understand hardly any of it"

Oh, dear!

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 11Last Thursday at 4:16 PM

Ethiopian food is heavily vegetarian, as mentioned above, traditionally served on a plate-sized piece of spongy flatbread. It is not unlike southern Indian vegetarian cuisine. I've had it only a couple of times, it's an interesting novelty but not something I would seek out regularly.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 12Last Thursday at 4:37 PM

It ain't no Mesopotamian food.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 13Last Thursday at 4:54 PM

It's boring.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 14Last Thursday at 5:14 PM

I don't usually like sweet wine, but the honey wine is good.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 15Last Thursday at 9:11 PM

It’s like Ethiopian food - but from 100 years ago.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 16Last Thursday at 9:33 PM

R15 honey wine sounds good! Never had it. Tell us more? Ethiopians do not drink water. They drink wine instead.

Wellness turkey pate.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 18Last Thursday at 10:19 PM

It looks like an overloaded diaper, although I'm sure it tastes OK.

I got one look at it and told my waiter, “Abyssinia.”

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 20Last Thursday at 10:33 PM

That looks like the injera that is made with teff blended with wheat flour. The brown one is better.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 21Last Friday at 4:15 AM

Mine went vegan.

Injera tastes like a damp bathmat.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 23Last Friday at 7:36 AM

R23, it's very spongy
