What You'll Get
Cooking at home involves the risk of small burns, spilled liquids, and the advances of an oven in heat. Avoid stove-top suitors with today's Groupon to Ziada Restaurant in New Westminster. Choose between the following options:
- For $16, you get an Eritrean and Ethiopian dinner for two (a $32 value) that includes the following:
- Choice of two dishes (a $22 value)
- Two glasses of wine (a $10 value)
- For $29, you get an Eritrean and Ethiopian dinner for four (a $64 value) that includes the following:

- Four glasses of wine (a $20 value)
At Ziada, friends and family gather around large plates which, in the tradition of Eritrean and Ethiopian culture, are shared by the handful. Once seated, patrons use only their hands and telekinesis to pull pieces from rolls of injera, a gluten-free flatbread that wraps around dishes such as marinated chicken with peppers, tomatoes, and spices cooked until it's as tender as an adolescent love letter. Ground beef simmers in an onion, tomato, and berbere sauce in the minchet abesh; exotic spices accent the flavours of the alicha, a curried beef stew. Meanwhile, herbivores can shred cellulose while sampling alicha's meatless cousin, a mixed vegetable sauce accompanied by cabbage, potatoes, and carrots. Flanked by vibrant red walls, diners break from trading laptop cleaning tips and pieces of food to sip glassfuls of wine amid the eatery's stylized portraits.
