Like the militant wing of the Clean Plate Club, Ethiopian restaurants encourage diners to eat the dishes in which their meal was served. Enjoy injera with this Groupon.

House, greek, or caesar salads pave the way for the succulent meat morsels that make up the entrees, such as the sautéed baby lamb in the titanic tibs ($14) or the freshly minced beef and tripe in the veggie-laden kitfo dulet ($13). The menu is separated into categories such as beef, chicken wings and burgers, poultry and lamb, and salads and desserts.
Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant
Amid hanging lanterns and colourful murals, the dining rooms at Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant's two locations fill with the aromas of spicy berbere sauce, sizzling beef tips, and savoury vegetable stews. Diners scoop up each bite with pieces of injera, a spongy flatbread that combines the tangy taste of sourdough with the aerodynamism of pizza delivered by frisbee. Cast-iron pots conceal slow-simmered stews of chicken and lamb, and slices of Western bread conceal pieces of grilled chicken or kifto, a very rare minced beef. Servers celebrate the Horn of Africa's claim as the birthplace of coffee by roasting beans at the table, releasing the earthy aromas of a traditional coffee ceremony.
