Ethiopian food!

18 Sep

This weekend we had a PPK meet-up at Zeni Ethiopian Restaurant in San Jose.  I’ve been there before but this time was even better!  We ordered the vegetarian combo which included (clockwise, from top) a carrot, cabbage and vegetable stew, a red lentil stew, a scrambled injera & red pepper dish, a yellow split pea stew, simmered collard greens, and a green salad all served on top of a big piece of injera bread.


BF and I shared a serving of lentil stew and split pea stew since those were our favorites last time. The whole table shared a big basket of injera, which I have grown to love. Super yums!


We also tried Ethiopian beer and red wine and it was all quite good! They also offer a coffee service for $25 that you have to order before your meal starts. I’m very curious what that entails.

    I had Ethiopian food for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I loved it! The injera took a little bit to get used to, but I liked it. Have you had the spicy potatoes? I think that was one of my favorites along with the red lentils.

      The red lentils are my favorite too! I’ve never had the spicy potatoes and I don’t think it was on the menu at this place. Darn! I just ordered “Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian Food” — hopefully there’s a recipe so I can give it a try 🙂
