Mahider Ethiopian Restaurant & Market
The rich history of Ethiopian cuisine can be traced back thousands of years, which perhaps explains why Ethiopian restaurants tend to adhere to tradition so closely. Mahider Ethiopian Restaurant & Market is no exception. The restaurant both prepares and serves its dishes the traditional way—family-style and without utensils. Instead, guests dine by tearing off pieces of injera, a flat bread made from grain indigenous to Ethiopia. They then use these pieces to scoop up meaty stews (known as wot) before eating them or stuffing them into the mouths of a loud gossip.
If you enjoy your meal and want to try your hand at preparing something similar, Mahider makes it easy. That's because it also acts as a market, selling ingredients to make classic dishes such as sambusa.
