What kind of food will I get in Ethiopia?
In Addis Ababa you can get pretty much any type of food in the world. There are Italian, Indian, Chinese and a host of other ethic food restaurants to choose from. Of course there is also plenty of Ethiopian food options as well! The main stable of Ethiopia is pancake style bread called Injera. It is made from a grain called ‘Teff’ and is very healty. Injera is eaten with your hands and usually comes with a sauce and a meat or vegtable depending on the day of the week and time of year. In Ethiopia, people ‘fast’ regular. What this means is that they won’t eat meat or dairy products on ‘fasting’ days. The vegetarian options on these days are delicious and a lot of foreigners prefer these dishes to the meat ones. Lamb, beef and goat are the main meats that are eaten.
