Food for Fuel: Aster’s Ethiopian Restaurant

October 5, 2008 at 3:32 pm | Posted in Food, Restaurants | 4 Comments

I like trying different kinds of cuisine, and since I’ve never had Ethiopian food and Haile Gebrselassie broke his world marathon record last weekend, Aster’s was the perfect restaurant for last night’s dinner adventure.

My companions (including Jameson) and I all ordered different dishes (I ordered Doro Wott), but each meal was served on the same giant platter, so we all shared and enjoyed the various flavors.

The food was served with injera, a flat, spongy bread used to scoop up the food instead of utensils. You can see it at the bottom of the platter. It was different than any bread I’ve ever tasted, and so was the food. It was fun to eat with my hands and lick my fingers at the table! I stupidly wore white pants, but I got out safely.

So, now I can check Ethiopian food off my list of ethnic cuisines to try. I’ll still eat it again though, and I recommend that you try too.
