Welcome to Ethiopian Diamond Restaurant
Dining in Ethiopia is characterized by the ritual breaking of injera and eating from the same plate, signifying the bonds of loyalty and friendship. These bonds are often demonstrated in the form of gurrsha – that is the placing of food in the mouth of another diner from one's own hand.
Ethiopia is an exotic land full of both high plateaus and low-lying plains. It is home to over 70 million people. The northern high country is populated mainly by Christians, while the plains are home to Muslims and animists. Dietary restrictions due to both religions and each region have given rise to vast variety of both meat and vegetarian dishes, as well as different methods of cooking each.
Ethiopian dishes are prepared with a distinctive variety of unique spices, this gives it an unforgettably taste to its exotic cookery. The dining experience is equally as exotic and is characterized by sharing food from a common plate, signifying the bonds of loyalty, family, and friendship. The traditional Ethiopian meal is served on a large platter that is draped with the crepe-like injera bread, with the selection of foods decoratively arranged around the center dish. To eat, diners simply tear off a piece of injera, use it to scoop up some of the various dishes and place it in their mouths.
