FOOD FRIDAY: Ethiopian Style

We love food. There is no denying it. Especially when it come to different exotic foods.
Although half of the time is Peter the one dragging me to such places, I enjoy them nevertheless.
Let’s face it, Grants Pass is not excatly the cultural salad bowl. So when one of our bride’s proposed meeting at an Ethipian resturant in Portland, we were thrilled!  Well, Peter was thrilled, I had to do some research. You know, just make sure they didn’t eat crickets or something of that sort in Africa.  I was pretty excited to I find out that  injera (Ethiopian bread) is to an Ethiopian what tortillas are to a Mexican.

Food is served up in a big, round plate. And I mean big...

 We all shared a vegetarian combo. Which was served on top of the injera. The eating utensils? Our hands. What better way to get to know someone that putting your hands all over each others food, right?

We loved it so much we ate there again the following night. Here is Peter proudly showing he cleaned the plate up! Quite an accomplishment considering the size of the thing...

If you are anywhere near Portland  and are in mood for something a little different be sure to check out the Queen Of Sheba...

Happy Friday!
