I would really like to try Ethiopian food, which sounds great. I really love the kinds of spices they use. However, I HATE injera. I don't like the texture, the appearance, or the taste. In Chinese restaurants, it is no big deal to ask for a fork and in many they will even provide Western utensils to everyone along with the chopsticks, without anyone even having to ask.
Is it completely unacceptable to ask for Western utensils in an Ethiopian restaurant? Would it be seen as insensitive or insulting? Have you ever done it?
