  • 6 Incredible Ethiopian Restaurants in New York City - አሜሪካ ኒውዮርክ የሚገኙ ስድስት ምርጥ የኢትዮጵያ ምግብ ሬስቶራንቶች -

    If you’ve ever found yourself scooping everything with bread during a meal, Ethiopian food is for you. All dishes are served on top of injera, a fluffy, slightly sour flatbread made primarily of teff flour. Utensils aren’t customary in Ethiopia: you just tear off a piece of injera and pick up whatever vegetable or meat dish you like. From Brooklyn to Harlem, Ethiopian restaurants in New York City serve amazing injera and spicy, complex heaps of goodness on top of it.

    Awash Ethiopian Restaurant

     

     

    One of a small chain of Ethiopian restaurants, Awash brings the East Village everything good about the original location in Harlem. You’ll find a modest, elegant dining room with white tablecloths, plus sumptuous smells from the kitchen. On your injera, be sure to order the special kitfo (steak tartare marinated in clarified butter and spices) and doro wat (marinated chicken served with a hard-boiled egg). For veggie-lovers, go for collard greens in the gomen and the beet-carrot medley of the key sir alicha. 338 E 6th St., 212-982-9589, awashny.com

    Benyam 

    Perhaps the best among the many great Harlem Ethiopian spots, Benyam brings excellence to its flavorful traditional dishes and hip atmosphere. Much of the produce is locally sourced, including the lentils in the azeefa with jalapeno and mustard and the lentils in the sambusa, a savory stuffed pastry like a samosa. Their beef dishes like the tibs wot and kitfo are tender, flavorful favorites as well. 2795 Frederick Douglass Blvd., 212-510-7353, benyamcuisine.com

    Bunna Cafe 

    At Bunna in Bushwick, Brooklyn, guests are welcomed into Ethiopian traditions and culture not only through the food, but also through the frequent demonstrations of Ethiopian coffee ceremonies at the cafe. Bunna, in fact, means coffee in Amharic, the primary language of Ethiopia. Come day or night for the coffee, a glass of T’ej (honey wine), or a completely vegan offering of yummy dishes at lunch or dinner. They even offer gluten-free Injera if you’re off wheat! 1084 Flushing Ave., 347-295-2227, bunnaethiopia.net

    Injera

     

     

    An intimate, candlelit space in the West Village, Injera is, of course, named for the foundational flatbread upon which all Ethiopian dishes are served. If you’re new to Ethiopian food, go straight to the “combinations” section of the menu, where you’ll find vegetarian, chicken, and meat combo platters with plenty of food for two. 11 Abingdon Sq., 212-206-9330, injeranyc.com

    Massawa

    Near Columbia University, you’ll find Massawa, an exemplary Ethiopian and Eritrean restaurant. Try the vegetable sambusas and tebsi: beef with tomatoes and the traditional spice blend berbere. Unlike other places of its kind, you’ll also find seafood like the shrimp tebsi. With a full bar, you can also enjoy some Ethiopian beer or t’ej. 1239 Amsterdam Ave., 212-663-0505, massawanyc.com

    Ghenet Brooklyn

     

     

    Ghenet bills itself as the place “Where Angels Eat.” That might well be the case, as the transcendent cuisine attests. This Brooklyn outpost has a funky, cozy dining room and serves especially wonderful kitfo, doro wett (chicken), atkelt wett (cabbage, potato, and carrot), and gomen (collards). If you can’t choose, they also offer combination platters. Who knows—you might have wings by the end of your meal! 348 Douglass St., 718-230-4475, ghenet.com

    Lamu

    The most laid back and relaxing coastal town in Kenya is Lamu, by far. With only occasional braying donkeys and calls to prayer, nothing can disturb the peacefulness travelers will experience in Lamu. What is best, the beaches there are breathtaking, and the town is located very close to a stunning marine national park ideal for snorkeling activities. Shela Beach is one of the most perfect places to chill out and adopt a slow coastal living style.

    Seychelles

    Just picture yourself for one second relaxing at a mesmerizing white sand beach surrounded by crystal clear waters, lush green hills, and impressive glacis boulders on a sunny day. It might sound too good to be true, but this is the everyday reality for those traveling to the Seychelles. No wonder it is a famous honeymoon destination. But there is more to the island than mere romance. The most adventurous can embark on jungle walks, dive, snorkel or go on boat excursions. What’s more, there are stunning marine parks and nature reserves to the delight of wildlife and nature lovers.

    Mauritius

    For a slice of paradise, hop on board a plane heading to Mauritius. Not only does the island offer amazing sunbathing and swimming opportunities on white sand beaches and cobalt blue waters, it also offers a rich history and cultural diversity. As what makes a place is also, and mostly, its people, travelers will be pleased to know that the stunning island is also home to some of the warmest and most welcoming people in the world who simply know how to relax and enjoy a slow-paced, happy life.

    Santo Antão

    Who has not heard about the beauty of the Cape Verdean islands? Amongst them, Santo Antão is without doubt one of the most spectaculars. Ruptured with stunning gorges, canyons and valleys, the vertical isle offers some of the best hiking opportunities in the West African region. The country’s second largest island is also one of the greenest with pine trees dominating gorgeous hilltops and tropical plants covering valleys. Here the coastline is picturesque, and even though winds can be strong and seas rough, there are still a couple of beautiful places where travelers can swim, including Praia Formosa.

    Kokrobite

    Located only a 45-minute drive from Accra, Ghana’s capital city, Kokrobite consists of a long stunning stretch of beautiful white sand beaches. The area is a favorite among backpackers, Accra weekenders and also volunteers. It does not have all the luxurious hotels and facilities. Instead, it provides authentic beach experiences for travelers who are up for a good party with barbecue, beer and live music. This is, indeed, the perfect place to unwind while listening to the sound of the waves for days.

    Réunion

    It almost seems impossible to have such a great diversity of astonishing landscapes on such a small area until you see it for yourself when visiting Réunion. Comparable to the island of Hawaii, this magical African island is home to gorgeous waterfalls, breathtaking mountainous landscapes, emerald forests, white but also black sand beaches, incredible panoramic views and much more. There is also a very accessible active volcano around and hiking remains a favorite activity. With a mix of Indian, Creole, African, French and Chinese heritage, this is the paradise island for nature, culture, food and beach lovers combined.

    Cape Maclear

    Looking for an unspoilt African island? Do not look any further. You have your answer in Cape MaclearMalawi’s little jewel. In this tiny fishing village located on Lake Nyasa, the pace of life is not only slow, it is extremely slow. The place is made famous for its kayaking opportunities, freshwater diving and many hammocks to relax in. But, most importantly, the whole point of traveling there is doing as little as you can!

    Limbe

    Located in Cameroon between the rainforest of Mount Cameroon and the stunning Atlantic coastline, Limbe is a stunning cosmopolitan seaside city. This attractive and charming place is popular both with local and international travelers who come to relax on the beach for some days before exploring another destination. The best beaches around are located at the north of the city and are known by the distance you need to travel to reach them. Mile 11 and Mile 6 are popular options and so is Mile 8 in Batoké village.
