    I have very little experience with Ethiopian, so I can't compare and contrast.

    BUT I can say I enjoyed my experiences in Nashville, which for years was a bleak desert as far as a wide range of ethnic choices. One WAS called the Abyssinian, I think. That may be the one called Addis Ababa. They move and change names, and it throws us off! But, hey, it's all about the injera! (BTW, Horn of Africa is getting some buzz in the Music City. Again, I can't remember which is which?!)

    My new favorite Ethiopian restaurant in Indianapolis is "Major Restaurant"
    1150 S. Mickley Ave.
    Indianapolis, IN 46241
    317-240-2700.


    (I don't know if this forum software will hot-link to that image url, or copy it over. So the remote loading may not work very long.)

    It's literally a stone's throw from the I-465 (the loop around Indianapolis) at West Washington Street Exit. (West side of Indy).  But it's on a dead end, and sort of hidden, so you can't see it until you're on top of it.

    i went to the  blue nile in columbus.  it just opened and only had about 6 tables.  the place was full of cab drivers, so i had to carry out.  i asked for utensilles and they didnt even have any silverware for the dining room.
    i got lamb riblets and veg.  it came on flat bread that looked like the stomach lining of a goat.
    it was gamey and greasey.  all in all, it was one of the worst meals i ever had.

    Emanu: The best new restaurant in Cincinnati 20 Jul 2008


    I take photos of food the way some people take photos of their kids. Every new dish I make or eat is recorded for future blogging purposes, and my boyfriend is now trained to pause before digging in when we sit down to dinner or are served at a restaurant.
    Sometimes, however, food is so good that I simply forget to bring out the camera. Friday night was one of those cases.
    Emanu, the much-anticipated East African/Ethiopian restaurant, in Pleasant Ridge has opened. Get there soon--because as soon as the word gets out, this place is going to be packed!

    What is it?
    Emanu opened some time last week, and you can tell they hoped to have a slow first couple of weeks. Some of the tables, while set with white linen, were still covered in plastic. A few decorative branches lingered in a corner, with the Ikea tags still attached. And with no liquor license yet, the bar served as a storage space.
    Tough luck for the owners: The place is already a hit. The two servers were completely overwhelmed on Friday night, and a couple of diners walked out because they waited 10 minutes to get menus. Their loss--the food was amazing, and the service was great (although slow).
    When I arrived at 6 p.m., I was one of three diners. By the time my friends arrived 30 minutes later, three more tables of two had arrived. An hour and a half later, when we were finishing up our meal, both sides of the dining room were packed with a diverse crowd. A Bible study group of 20 took up most of the back dining room, and couples of all ages were in the front room.
    According to a friend of mine who lives in Pleasant Ridge, Emanu's owners formerly ran a restaurant down the street, so their former customer base had been waiting impatiently for the (re)opening. I can see why. Emanu is family owned and operated, and the food is amazing. During my half-hour wait for my friends (I mixed up our reservation time), I had time to linger over the menu and an Ethiopian coffee (at $1.50, it's thick and rich, served like Turkish coffee but tasting as fine as an Italian espresso.). Co-owner Sam Yhdego chatted with me for awhile and seemed thoroughly shocked that they were so busy on Friday. The two-page menu thankfully came with translations and descriptions, because I've only eaten Ethopian once a long time ago when I still ate meat. The menu offers three vegetarian stews (wats) and two varieties of beef, lamb and chicken: a wat and a tibs (saute).
    We had one each of the vegetarian dishes: collard greens, lentils and cabbage each sauteed with spices and served on injara (the sour crepelike bread that's ubiquitous in Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine). Served family style on a large platters and extra injara, the dishes were spicy but not hot -- and affordable. For three of us, with appetizers, entrees and dessert, our bill was less than $50! Our other two friends shared two meat dishes and spent about the same per person. The food was amazing, and I was so distracted that I forgot to take a photo!
    We planned ahead and brought our own wine--three bottles of it. Few other diners were in the know and looked longingly at our wine. Another word of warning: Emanu's credit card system hadn't been set up last weekend. It's cash-only--but there's an ATM across the street if you forget.  
    Who's it for?
    Anyone who, like me, is tired of the same ethnic food options in Cincinnati. Take a group of friends and make a night of it. Eat Ethiopian style, with your right hand, using bits of injara to scoop up the tasty stews.
    How much?
    Appetizers: all are $3
    Try the sambussas, fried meat or veggie filled dumplings that reminded us of samosas. The vegetable soup was hearty, dotted with pasta and rich in cumin. Get it! 
    Entrees: $9-$11
    Get a couple and share.
    Desserts: Baklava and cheesecake, each $3. They don't seem to be homemade, but the vanilla bean cheesecake was tasty (the baklava was good but not outstanding). And for $3, the price can't be beat!
    Finish the meal with Ethiopian coffee: $1.50.   
    Where is it?
    6063 Montgomery Road, Pleasant Ridge.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    one thing I have learned about going to real ethnic restaurants is to keep an open mind and ask a lot of questions - even so I was somewhat surprised the way the food was presented but I really enjoyed it

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    if you are not familiar with this type food I would read up about it - before going to such a restaurant - this wiki writeup is very informative and helpful:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ethiopian_cuisine&printable=yes



    Ethiopian cuisine characteristically consists of spicy vegetable and meat dishes, usually in the form of wot (With a hard 't' noise), a thick stew, served atop injera, a large sourdough flatbread, which is about 50 centimeters (20 inches) in diameter and made out of fermented teff flour. Ethiopians eat with their right hands, using pieces of injera to pick up bites of entrées and side dishes. No utensils are used.
    Traditional Ethiopian cuisine employs no pork of any kind, as most Ethiopians are either Ethiopian Orthodox Christians, Muslims or Jews, and are thus prohibited from eating pork. Furthermore, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church prescribes a number of fasting (tsom Ge'ez: ጾም tṣōm) periods, including Wednesdays, Fridays, and the entire Lenten season, so Ethiopian cuisine contains many vegetarian (Amharic: ye-tsom የጾም ye-ṣōm, Tigrinya: nay-tsom ናይጾም nāy-ṣōm) dishes. This has also led Ethiopian cooks to develop a rich array of cooking oil sources: besides sesame and safflower, Ethiopian cuisine also uses nug (also spelled noog, known also as niger seed).[1] Ethiopian restaurants are a popular choice for vegetarians living in Western countries.

    [edit] Types of Ethiopian Cuisine


    Raw ingredients in Harar


    Berbere, a combination of powdered chile pepper and other spices (somewhat analogous to Southwestern American chili powder), is an important ingredient used in many dishes. Also essential is niter kibbeh, a clarified butter infused with ginger, garlic, and several spices.

    [edit] Wat


    This meal, consisting of injera and several kinds of wat (stew), is typical of Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine.


    Wat stews all begin with a large amount of chopped red onions, which the cook simmers or sautees in a pot. Once the onions have softened, the cook adds niter kebbeh (or, in the case of vegan dishes, vegetable oil). Following this, the cook adds berbere to make a spicy keiy (Amharic: ቀይ ḳey, Tigrinya, Ge'ez: ቀይሕ ḳeyyiḥ; "red") wat, or may omit the berbere for a milder alicha wat or alecha wat (Amharic: አሊጫ ālič̣ā). In the event that the berbere is particularly spicy, the cook may elect to add it before the kibbeh or oil so the berbere will cook longer and become milder. Finally, the cook adds meat such as beef (siga, Ge'ez: ሥጋ śigā), chicken (Amharic: ዶሮ dōrō, Tigrinya: ደርሆ derhō), fish (Amharic: asa), goat or lamb (Amharic: beg, Tigrinya በግዕ beggiʕ); legumes such as split peas (Amharic: ክክ kik, Tigrinya: ክኪ kikkī) or lentils (Amharic: ምስር misir, Tigrinya: ብርስን birsin); or vegetables such as potatoes (dinich, Amharic: ድንች dinič, Tigrinya ድንሽ diniš), carrots and chard (Tigrinya: costa).

    [edit] Tibs

    Alternatively, rather than being prepared as a stew, meat or vegetables may be sautéed to make tibs (also tebs, t'ibs, tibbs, etc., Ge'ez ጥብስ ṭibs). Tibs is served normal or special, "special tibs" is served on a hot dish with vegetables (salad) mixed in. The mid-18th century European visitor to Ethiopia, Remedius Prutky, describes tibs as a portion of grilled meat served "to pay a particular compliment or show especial respect to someone."[2]

    [edit] Kitfo

    Another distinctive Ethiopian dish is kitfo (frequently listed as ketfo), which consists of raw (or rare) ground beef marinated in mitmita (Ge'ez: ሚጥሚጣ mīṭmīṭā, a very spicy chili powder) and niter kibbeh. Gored gored is very similar to kitfo, but uses cubed, rather than ground, beef.

    [edit] Breakfast

    Firfir or fitfit, (Ge'ez: ፍርፍር firfir; ፍትፍት fitfit) made from shredded injera with spices, is a typical breakfast dish. Another popular breakfast food is dulet (Ge'ez: ዱለት dūlet), a spicy mixture of tripe, liver, beef, and peppers with injera. Fatira consists of a large fried pancake made with flour, often with a layer of egg, eaten with honey. Chechebsa (or kita firfir) resembles a pancake covered with berbere and kibbeh, or spices, and may be eaten with a spoon.

    [edit] Beverages


    Coffee ceremony in Harar


    Tej is a honey wine, similar to mead, that is frequently drunk in bars (in particular, in a tej bet; Ge'ez ጠጅ ቤት ṭej bēt, "tej house"). katikal and araki are inexpensive local spirits that are very strong.
    Coffee (buna) originates from Ethiopia, and is a central part of Ethiopian beverages. Equally important is the ceremony which accompanies the serving of the coffee, which is sometimes served from a jebena (ጀበና), a clay coffee pot in which the coffee is boiled. In most homes a dedicated coffee area is surrounded by fresh grass, with special furniture for the coffee maker. A complete ceremony has three rounds of coffee and is accompanied by the burning of frankincense.

    [edit] Serving style

    A mesob (Ge'ez: መሶብ mesōb) is a tabletop on which food is traditionally served. The mesob is usually woven from straw. It has a lid that is kept on it til time to eat. Just before the food is ready, a basin of water and soap is brought out for washing one's hands. When the food is ready, the top is taken off the mesob and the food is placed in the mesob. When the meal is finished, the basin of water and soap is brought back out for the hands to be washed again.

    [edit] Gurage dishes

    Gurage cuisine additionally makes use of the false banana plant (enset, Ge'ez: እንሰት inset), a type of ensete. The plant is pulverized and fermented to make a bread-like food called qocho or kocho (Ge'ez: ቆጮ ḳōč̣ō), which is eaten with kitfo.[3] The root of this plant may be powderized and prepared as a hot drink called bulla (Ge'ez: ቡላ būlā), which is often given to those who are tired or ill. Another typical Gurage preparation is coffee with butter (kebbeh).
    The most popular Gurage main dish is kitfo. Gomen kitfo is another dish prepared in the occasion of Meskel, a very popular holiday marking the discovery of the True Cross. Collard greens (ጎመን gōmen) are boiled, dried and then finely chopped and served with butter, chili and spices.

    Haven't been to one in about, oh, 19 years now. It was in D.C., but I can't find a listing for it now. I believe it was the Red Sea, but I might be wrong. There are 21 listed here.

    I remember the food as very good. I went with my Anthropology class back in college. Each large injera had three schlops of food on it. Red, green, and yellow. Red was beef, green was lamb, and yellow was chicken. They gave us one spicy and two mild, and each table got to pick which one was the spicy one. We picked the lamb. It was my favorite. We also had a honey wine with the meal, which was quite good.

    I hadn't been for years but I just went again on a Friday in the middle of January for my sister's birthday.  I thought it was great.  We had big platters of food that had chicken and beef and lamb and different kinds of lentils and eggplant and greens.  It is true that they do not give you utensils, you use the bread (injara to scoop it).  However, several people asked for utensils and they were happy to provide.  The food was spciy and I thought a great value for all that we got.  There are onyl 6 tables in the front room but the room to the side was quite big and has several traditional setups in addition to a lot of regular tables.  I will definitely be going again.

     To me, the best part on an Ethiopian restaurant is not the food, it is the people (I find Ethiopians quite gracious) and best of all, the music, and DANCING!! 
    If the restaurant is in an immigrant community, I have found around midnight, many people come in, the music breaks out, and "iskista" starts off. If you have never seen it, the dance is like no other:

    In New Brunswick, NJ there is Makedas.

    I ate here a few times before and after seeing a show at the theaters that are around the corner. Its good for a change off from the usual restaurant fare.

    Food was pretty good although it was kind of odd sitting on little short stools and  eating off of a drum as pictured across from the bar.

    My suggestion for Madison, WI 2009/02/11 21:21:20 (permalink)
    The place is called Baraka.  It is located below the street level right in the middle of campustown.  I recommend a dish called Minchet Abish (minced beef, onions, tomatoes and lentils in a rich blend of spices and cooked in a spicy berbere spiked brown sauce.  However, if spicy food is not your thing, you should probably order something else.

    I guess not all Californians have that spirit of adventure to try new things.

    The Ethiopian restaurants I know of provide tables and chairs.  The food is served family style and utensils are available if requested but the food can be eaten easily without them as explained in this thread.

    That just means more for you and I, NYPizzaGuy!

    I love Ethiopian food.  Every Ethiopian restaurant I've ever been to has tables and chairs a well as silverware for the more fastidious diners.  I'm happy eating it the way it's meant to be eaten-- tearing off pieces of injera and using it as a sort of scoop.

    The previously mentioned Blue Nile in Columbus, OH has been a family favorite for years-- I'm just sorry I don't get up there more often.  I want to try Emanu in Cincy, too.

    The fastest land animal on Earth is the Eithiopian chicken.

    Is it OK for white people to go there, or is it like a soul food place?

    My new favorite Ethiopian restaurant in Indianapolis is "Major Restaurant"
    1150 S. Mickley Ave.
    Indianapolis, IN 46241
    317-240-2700.


    (I don't know if this forum software will hot-link to that image url, or copy it over. So the remote loading may not work very long.)

    It's literally a stone's throw from the I-465 (the loop around Indianapolis) at West Washington Street Exit. (West side of Indy).  But it's on a dead end, and sort of hidden, so you can't see it until you're on top of it.

     
     
     
    I'll have to check it out. I've never heard of it, but the only time I'm on the west side is when I'm going to the airport or Eagle Creek.
