Wazema (Ethiopian on Danforth) - Brief Review

Fwagra | May 14, 2007 01:15 PM

We were three at lunch at this Ethiopian restaurant which my friend has been raving about since moving to the neighbourhood.

Anyhow, the place has good food. And, for those who have not tried Ethiopian, the food is quite exotic and interesting.

Of course, the food arrived on a huge platter atop injera (Ethiopian unleavened bread/pancake). We had beef stew which was very good. And, three types of lentil stews, all of which were very tasty. One beef dish was good, but there was injera mixed into the stew which was rather redundant. But, on the whole, the food was very savoury and delicious. A bit of extra Berebere sauce added intensity. The final coffee ceremony was fair enough; you do get a good coffee but I really don't need the frankincense. My favourite item was the beef stew; it was beautiful red pieces of beef in a very delicious sauce. Simple but good.

I must admit, I don't particularly enjoy eating without utensils of some kind. But, I am sure that they would oblige with cutlery if you ask. I did not, because I did not want to detract from the experience which I did enjoy on the whole.
