Nothing like an Ethiopian dining experience to bring your family closer together. If you haven’t tried it, then I recommend that you pack up the clan and enjoy an African-inspired night of dining.
Scooping up doro tibs, lentils, and collard greens with a wad of injera (spongy sourdough flatbread) soaked in the spicy juices from the entree provides a satisfaction that is indescribable. Since moving from Philadelphia we have been on a quest to find a replacement for our doro tib and lentil cravings. We recently took a drive to Chicago and found Tesfa Ethiopian Cuisine.
Not only did they serve us a delicious meal, but the complimentary cup of chai tea as also delicious!
Now, they didn't have doro (chicken) tibs on the menu but the catfish was fiyah and a strong contender.
Here’s a little background on our love for Ethiopian cuisine...
When we moved to Philly there was a Ethiopian restaurant around the corner. The "Mr. Dr." took us there after telling us how good the food was and how unique of an experience we'd have. After ordering, the food is brought out on a large platter in which it is intended for us all to share. My first time at this restaurant I insisted on using a fork...SOOO not the way to do it... after a few visits the fork was eliminated and I was scooping lentils and collards with injera in true Ethiopian fashion.
