Injera in Seattle?

Anyone know a place (grocery store or restaurant or otherwise) to buy pre-made injera in Seattle? I wanted to try my hand at making some Ethiopian dips/dishes, but am not really the make-your-own-bread kind of person...

  1. I've seen it in a couple of small Ethiopian shops on hwy 99 in the Shoreline area. I'm not that familiar with other areas with Ethiopian concentrations. I believe there is something along 15th NE north of 100 (east of Northgate),


    1. I think Zuma on 85th just west of Greenwood has them.

        What is Zuma? I live in the area.....

          Its an ethiopian store/deli type restaurant, across from Greenwood market, between greenwood and 3rd on 85th, I believe, south side of the street.

          I've never been in their, but it looked more like a store than a restaurant, so I would expect they have them.

            most of zuma's business is selling injera and imported spices and dried legumes (shiro etc.) to east africans for their home kitchens, but they also have a kitchen and make a short list of dishes including kitfo and tibs. none of their dishes are of the stewy wot variety although i've gotten them to make their tibs more saucy for me. they're incredibly nice people and it's the only ethiopian restaurant for miles around but it's just not nearly as good as lalibela, mesob etc. in the cd. their injera is good though and they'd be a great place to get stocked up for trying out some ethiopian recipes. and i'd be more than happy to be a taster.

      2. Tana Market in the Central District.
        2518 E Cherry St

        1. Amy's market in the central district too. I'd look around on cherry/MLK in the area there...

          1. There is a cluster of Ethiopian restaurants and markets in the Central District around Cherry and MLK (most are located on Cherry St.) If the markets don't carry injera you can definitely pop into one of the restaurants.
