Ethiopian injera at Cafe Abyssinia

In Ethiopian cuisine, you eat your plate!

Slow Food Waitakere organised a dinner to introduce people to this wonderfully exotic experience.

In the unlikely setting of a Mount Roskill mall, we were transported to the horn of Africa – for our senses at least! Ethiopian cooking is great fun – sauces are served on a ‘plate’ of injera. Injera is a kind of fluffy yeasted pancake. You rip off a piece to pick up a mouthful of sauce.

Cafe Abyssinia is unlicensed. The service was delightful. The food is rich with African spices, but not particularly hot.

I thoroughly recommend trying Cafe Abyssinia – both for the food and the unique experience.
