Ethiopian Food in Toronto

One of the things I miss in the Aude is ethnic food.  Food that isn’t French or ‘frenchified’.  Toronto is a terrific place for ethnic food.  On Saturday we went to Addis Ababa – 1184 Queen Street West for anyone who plans to go.

It was the first time I’d had Ethiopian food and it was terrific.  Lots of vegetarian choices and delicious meat and chicken dishes.  Some things spicy, some not.  No utensils, the food is served on injera – sort of a sourdough crepe made with millet flour.  You break off a piece and use it to scoop the food. 

Astrid Ketsela Belayneh, the owner of Addis Ababa, has written a cookbook, The Recipe of Love – an Ethiopian Cookbook. It’s available at the restaurant, online at the website, and from The Cookbook Store in Toronto.  It’s $30.00 Cdn plus shipping. Yes, I bought one.

I see an Ethiopian dinner party in my near future.
