I've never eaten Ethiopian food before and this was such a great introduction. For the most part, it's gluten free, which was great for my sister, and there are SO many varieties of food that it makes sense to eat with several people and order a few things to share. I can't remember the name, but my favourite had to be the avocado chicken dish. The injera is SO GOOD. I've never tasted anything...more
