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.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 2404/09/2021

Isn't that basically Ethiopian cuisine?

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 104/08/2021

Try the veal.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 204/08/2021

R1 yes.

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 704/08/2021

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

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 904/08/2021

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 1104/08/2021

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 1204/08/2021

It ain't no Mesopotamian food.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 1304/08/2021

It's boring.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 1404/08/2021

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

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 1504/08/2021

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

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 1604/08/2021

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 1804/08/2021

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 2004/08/2021

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

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 2104/09/2021

Mine went vegan.

Injera tastes like a damp bathmat.

by Former Dafur Orphanreply 2304/09/2021

R23, it's very spongy
