How do you eat Ethiopian Cuisine?
• There are no silverware, forks, or knives. This is all about using your hands. Your meal comes with a traditional Ethiopian bread called Injera.

• Start by tearing off a piece of Injera. Usually half the size of your palm is good enough; maybe even a little less. As long as you can scoop up enough stew, you're in good shape.

• Choose which dish you want to try and scoop it up with the Injera.

• If you are on a date or dining with someone you really like, scoop up some food and feed it to them. This is an Ethiopian tradition called "Gursha." It's basically an act of kindness and respect towards the other person.

• Your meal goes well with Ethiopian beer, wine and/or coffee.
