Eating with your hands is one of life's little pleasures—especially picking up pieces of injera to enjoy Ethiopian fare at Seattle's best spots. There are several pockets of great Ethiopian eateries around town in the Central District, Rainier Valley, and Pinehurst, and if you haven't been exploring these restaurants, it's time to start.
Not sure what the dishes are? Injera, the typical, nutritious staple of Ethiopian and Eritrean food, is a spongy bread typically made from the ancient grain teff. It's used as a vessel to eat such delights as doro wot, tibs, and vegetables aplenty. Start with a few of our favorite Ethiopian restaurants, ask for staff recommendations, and you'll be craving ayeb in no time.
