Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant in Burnaby, BC, considers the traditional ritual of breaking injera, an Ethiopian flat bread, and sharing a communal plate placed in the middle of the table, to be an important part of the Ethiopian heritage which is sharing and interacting with family and friends. Injera is part of every African cuisine dish served at Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant, and is traditionally eaten with the fingers. With the innovative use of a variety of spices, all dishes have their own exotic taste, which taste is further enhanced by the use of nitter kebbeh, a specially prepared butter. Vegetarian dishes are also considered to be one of the staple diets of Ethiopia, and diners will find that the dishes made from lentils, peas and other assorted vegetables are just as tasty and filling as dishes made with meat. We welcome you to our restaurant and assure you of a great dining experience.
