Anyway, a couple of weeks ago a group of us went to The Abyssinian for my friend's birthday. I have never eaten Ethiopian food before, but have been keen to go here for ages so was pretty happy when told we were going there.
The staff were wonderful & suggested we all get the combination plates to share so we did as we were told. The others got meaty plates & being the only vegos there Greg & I got a vegetarian plate. It is a massive big round plate covered in delicious injera covered in little bits of all the different vego dishes. It was so, so good. The food was super tasty & fun because you get to eat with your hands & who doesn't love that?? The highlight was without a doubt the shiro which is chickpeas ground to gravy tasting deliciousnes. A big bowl of this might be a bit too much but just having a little bit was very yum. I think our meal was $35 & well worth it, they are also BYO which is my favourite thing ever. I am definitely looking forward to returning soon.
