If you’re in Toronto and interested in many culinary experiences Toronto offers, you’re practically required to seek out some Ethiopian food. There are several Ethiopian restaurants around since Toronto is home to a sizable Ethiopian community. Serving tasty and reasonably priced Ethiopian food, Ethiopian House has a variety of beef, chicken and vegetarian options on the menu. The aroma of frankincense, ambiance and welcoming host gives you sense of Ethiopia in downtown Toronto.
We have been to Ethiopian House many times. During our recent visit we ordered the vegetarian and meat combo platter which featured a sampling of beef, lentils, split peas, chickpeas, collard greens, cabbage, and fresh vinegary salad, to name a few. It had a hearty mix of just-the-right-level-of-spicy meats, lentils and vegetables, all scooped up by hand with spongy, injera bread. We also ordered Doro Wat, a spicy, chicken based sauce, cooked with butter, onion, chili, garlic and spices served with a boiled egg. One thing you need to understand when eating Ethiopian food is that food is eaten with your fingers and utensils aren’t used. Injera , a spongy sourdough flatbread made from fermented teff flour is used to pinch and eat the food.
They also do traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony and it takes about 30 minutes to prepare. If you are not in a hurry and have time to spare, it's worth a try.
