Must Watch

Women only approach me for my money

You have probably eaten Ethiopian food if you live in a big metropolis. Even the well-known cartoon series The Simpsons featured an episode where Marge and the kids discovered how to “rip and dip” into the hearty stews served on an Ethiopian table. The cuisine is among the healthiest, tastiest, and most visually appealing in the entire globe. Ethiopians take tremendous measures to maintain their traditional eating practices and are understandably proud of their culture. Extreme hospitality is the norm in this country. When visiting someone’s home, Eliza Richman, co-founder of the delightful Addis Eats walking tours (which I took when I went to the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, last year), advises, “You’d better proclaim you’ve already eaten.” You’re going to have two meals regardless of what. ” Offering close friends and family a snack while having dinner is referred to as “gursha,” and it is a nice ritual. Since most people eat with their hands, this is a very thoughtful and personal act. Marge Simpson remarked, “When you shove a pancake down someone’s throat, that’s a gursha.” Everyone exclaims, “Gursha!” Any visitor must be aware of the schedule of the so-called “fasting days,” which are strictly observed even in Addis Abeba. On Wednesdays and Fridays, almost everyone follows a vegan diet (Lent is also a time of fasting), therefore it’s not the best time to find delicious meat, unless the restaurant is crowded with tourists. Who would want to eat at those places, though? Although dairy is still forbidden, the upper classes have recently started to violate the regulations by eating fish on fast days. Given that there is always a large variety of vegetarian and vegan options on the menu thanks to these traditions, Ethiopian food is among the best in the world for vegetarians and vegans. A safe choice is the bayenetu, a vibrant spread of vegetable dishes stacked on top of a plate of injera.
