Comfort food: Shiro Wot for the crispy cold Canadian fall and winter days.
Abyssinia Restaurant is here in downtown Calgary to serve you delectable food from the unique and ancient traditional cuisine of Ethiopia and Eritrea. We hope you will find this a truly exciting dining experience while breaking some injera and eating from the same plate with friends and family.
Ethiopian food is best known for the spongy sourdough flatbread called Injera, which serves as the ‘spoon’ for lentil, bean, meat, and vegetable dishes served with it. Ethiopian dishes are characterized by the unique variety and combination of spices used to give them their exotic taste.
Vegan dishes are also a staple of Ethiopian cuisine, especially during lent and other fasting seasons when most of the Coptic Orthodox Christians temporarily become vegans.
Ethiopian cuisine is a delightful experience. Featuring both vegan and meat entrées, it gives you a choice of good nutrition while enjoying its delicate and exotic seasonings.
We hope to see you enjoying great meals at Abyssinia Restaurant soon.
