As well as discovering Crepes on Columbus a couple weeks back, I also tried eating something out of the ordinary. For me, that meant trying Ethiopian food.
Ray and I went to Awash over by 107 and Amsterdam.
Previously, I had heard a lot about dining at Ethiopian restaurants from friends previously, but never really bothered to do my own investigating. It just didn’t really seem that interesting. Plus, I’d tried that bread/wrap (called injera) that they use to pick up the food and I’d always thought it tasted kind of like a mushy sourdough. I hadn’t been much of a fan of that.
However, despite all my preconceptions about Ethiopian food, it was pretty tasty over all. I still can’t quite get used to the injera. The meat kind of reminds me of some blend of Indian and Chinese spices, with a hint of something slightly more acerbic.
