Popular Menu Items
Image Name Description Cuisines
Popular Menu Item Chicken Tibs Chicken Tibs Chicken Tibs is made using chicken pieces that have been cooked in a curry sauce with peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes, rosemary and a selection of other spice which vary from restaurant to restaurant. This is also a ‘ceremonial’ dish which is cooked by Ethiopian nationals to celebrate or commemorate an occasion. Whilst not completely tasting of curry, it is still a spicy hot dish. Ethiopian
Popular Menu Item Lamb Alicha Wat Lamb Alicha Wat A lamb version of a ‘wat’ stew, the difference being in the way it is made using ‘berbere’ sauce, which is made of very hot and strong spices such as chilli. The basic method of making the stew is always the same, but the spices vary, the same as an Indian cuisine. A clarified butter is used to help break down the onions so that they form a thick sauce. The lamb can frequently be mutton and not young spring lamb, so the flavour is much more intense. Served with injera bread as a base. Ethiopian
Popular Menu Item Ethiopian Doughnuts Ethiopian Doughnuts Doughnut style desserts are served in Ethiopian restaurants throughout the world, although you would never find them in Ethiopia itself, certainly not the Westernised version. ‘Chornaki’ is the cake style pastry that is found mostly, consisting of sweetened bread dough which is then deep fried to form a doughnut style dessert. Chornaki is often also called ‘Past’ but all these versions vary from restaurant to restaurant. Some are cooked to resemble pretzels and coated in a dark chocolate before serving, whilst others literally appear like a traditional round doughnut (some with a hole!) on your plate. Other restaurants serve a tiramisu, Ethiopian style! Ethiopian
Popular Menu Item Injera Injera Injera is the traditional Ethiopian bread, which can be served on its own but is usually topped with a dish such as the meat stew. The bread is quite ‘spongy’ in texture even though quite thin, and resembles more of a pancake or crepe. The bread is made from tef, which is an Ethiopian staple grain of wheat and barley. Ethiopian
Popular Menu Item Meat Stew Meat Stew Meat stews are one of the staple forms of diet for Ethiopian nationals, and there will always be at least one on the menu in restaurants. Traditionally goat, the menus in the UK tend to serve the stew as a beef stew. Any dish with ‘wat’ is a stew, which has a base of onions and vegetable oil and usually turmeric and garlic. There are frequently pulses or legumes in the dish, along with potatoes, tomatoes and of course the meat. Heavily spiced but quite delicious. Ethiopian
Popular Menu Item Tej Tej Tej resembles a honeyed version of ale, similar to mead in its flavour and texture. It is drunk by Ethiopians in their own country at celebrations and large get togethers. Very sweet with almost a cidery taste, some restaurants actually make their own with hops and buckthorn, and include apricots. The Tej is actually the name of the vessel that the drink is served in, like a round vase. Berz is another variety which is not so strong as it has less fermentation time. Ethiopian
Popular Menu Item Ethiopian Beer Ethiopian Beer Almost all beers and lagers are served in Ethiopian restaurants, but they will be UK or US known brands. The traditional beer made in Ethiopia for special occasion is called Tella, but as yet, no restaurants appear to make it in the UK. Tella is a barley based brew, and is sold in special ‘inns’ called Tella houses in Ethiopia. Ethiopian
