Top Places for Ethiopian Cuisine in Seattle

When you think of Ethiopian food, you think of spices. Mainly vegetable and meat dishes, usually in the form of wat, which is a thick stew, and injera, a large sourdough flatbread. The stew is made with spicy peppers and meat or fish, or a variety of vegetables. The dishes are served family-style, and using utensils is optional, which kids love. Dip the injera into the hearty stews and sauces, and enjoy.
