Chefs create dishes such as asa tibs, or salmon sautéed with onions and traditional spices ($18.95); bozeno shiro, which features chunks of beef with spices and ground chickpeas ($15.95); and doro wat—Ethiopia’s national dish—featuring tender chicken and a hard-boiled egg. Ethiopian dishes are meant to be shared.
Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant
Though the idea of shared plates most often conjures up images of dainty Spanish tapas, the communal meals at Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant are hardly suitable for passing. Instead, everyone sits around and digs right into a giant platter called a beyainatu, which translates to “a little bit of this, and a little bit of that.” Diners tear off pieces of flat, spongy bread known as injera and scoop up dollops of rich stews. Ethiopia’s signature dish, doro wat, is a mouth-warming union of chicken, traditional berbere spices, and hard-boiled egg. Each entree comes paired with two vegan sides, such as the curried vegetables of tikil gomen or the slow-cooked chickpeas and herbs of shiro. The chefs work particularly well with lamb and seafood, which best show off delicate hints of sautéed herbs and chilis.
