As a species, we developed silverware when we no longer wished to use our bare hands or rely on huge, terrifying birds to feed us by mouth. Ditch the forks and eat like our ancestors with this Groupon.

Warm yellow walls and tiles decorated with colorful figures aren't the only festive elements you'll encounter at Addis Adeba: the restaurant is also filled with the spice-laden aromas of traditional Ethiopian cuisine. Platters and hand-woven baskets known as mesobs are filled with all of the components needed for a communal meal—except for the silverware and the place cards, that is. Diners scoop up each bite in the traditional Ethopian fashion, with pieces of spongy injera bread. If they wish, they're also encouraged to feed one another in a traditional gesture of compassion and affection. Whichever way they choose to eat, chefs bombard their senses with vegetarian and meat-based dishes—from tekil gomen, a combination of cabbage and carrots, to doro wat, morsels of chicken dressed in red-pepper sauce.
