One of my friends once told me about Ethiopian food reminding her of tamil food, and to be very tasty. Berlin has several Ethiopian restaurants, and I decided to book a table for dinner at Bejte Ethiopia in Berlin. As we took the U-Bahn we had some difficulties in finding the restaurant at first, but we somehow managed 😛
Bejte Ethiopia is beautifully decorated, with Ethiopian décor and traditional music. It was an experience itself. The staff is so kind, but we had some difficulties in understanding each other, as they’re not routined in either German or English. But that was actually not a problem at all.
We decided to share a vegetarian plate with Injeras and several curries. The Injera pancakes reminds pretty much of the tamil appam, and the curries are very similar to the Sri Lanka/tamil curries. Spicy and soooooo yummy! The staff even came with extra injeras free of charge 😉
You eat Ethiopian food with your fingers, and I loved to be able to do so. I always feel that food tastes better when eating with your fingers 🙂
We tried several restaurants in Berlin, and Betje was the best experience. I would love to eat here once again. I’ll undoubtedly recommend this place 😉
