Ethiopian Craving

These past few weeks, I’ve been having mad Ethiopian cravings. I already went to Rahel a couple of weeks ago, but that didn’t quell my need for spiced stews. I did some googling and was excited to read that there’s an Ethiopian restaurant pretty near my work!

I went to Industry Cafe & Jazz for lunch today for some delicious Ethiopian food. It was pretty quiet in the restaurant — only three tables full. I couldn’t decide what I wanted so I asked the owner, who was taking my order, to just give me a plate of whatever he thought I should try.

Out came a plate of injera, two stews and a pretty boring salad. I was sad that he thought I wanted a generic mixed-greens salad with mediocre dressing. I would have preferred collard greens. The rest of the plate was fantastic. Injera was soft, sour, and spongey. The chicken stew as flavorful and just the right amount of spicy. The red lentil stew was tender and hearty.

I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. Might have to go again tomorrow.
