Cuisine

Ethiopian cuisine is nothing to ignore either. Not only is the food extremely unique and flavorful, but the food culture that makes up Ethiopia is also something a visitor could find truly fascinating. One might happen to watch numerous times local Ethiopians feeding each other with a bite of food, which is seen as a very respectable way or a loving thing to do.

Injera, which would be accompanied by stews, curries, meats or vegetables is the staple diet for most Ethiopians. It is made from an endemic grain known as teff, which is ground into flour, made into batter, slightly fermented, and then fried on a heavy skillet into giant circular pancakes. The texture is soft and spongy and the flavor is slightly sour.

However, for those who cannot acquire a taste for traditional Ethiopian food, a range Italian and other Western dishes is available almost everywhere.
