Any good Ethiopian in the city?

Recently had some Ethiopian food in DC. Any NYC recommendations?

  1. Ghenet on Mulberry is pretty good. In the last few years the ingredients necessary to produce 'authentic' Ethiopian food have become increasingly available. Noticed today that you can find tef now in Whole Foods.


      Try the search function! it works. That thread is from two weeks ago. I like Awash best. DC has some of the best places in the east coast, I don't think NYC places are thought to be as good.

      1. My Ethiopian dining experience was highlighted by trying their honey wine or 'Mead'.
        Chilled, and delicious.

        1. re: Cheese Boy

          The honey 'wine' is called Tej and is available in recent years from,
          I believe, Canada.

        2. I think the injera at Ghenet is really good, with a wonderful spongy light texture and not too sour. yum.

            I agree it's pretty good. I ate a lot of injera in Ethiopia and
            think that version at Ghenet is as close to my memory as I've had
            stateside. Tried, without satisfaction, several places in Washington.
