Looking for the best Ethiopian food in Toronto? Well, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from below that offer both traditional plates and creative renditions.
Ethiopian food is some of the most flavourful and vibrant food that Toronto has to offer. Toronto is a city known for having such a diverse number of restaurants and dishes from an array of countries around the world. There are a number of Ethiopian restaurants that have been supplying Toronto residents with delicious meals for years. Although Ethiopian restaurants can be found across the city, two main neighbourhoods dominate when it comes to Ethiopian spots -- Danforth East and Bloor West.
A majority of these restaurants have become popular for their platters of stews, curries and meats -- all atop a bed of injera to soak up the delicious flavours. Injera is a pancake-like fermented flatbread that is porous and pairs perfectly with the dozens of different stewed veggies and meats. With a mixture of spices such as chilli powder, fenugreek, ginger, garlic, cardamom and cinnamon -- these dishes are far from bland. Chefs at these restaurants share flavours of Ethiopia with the surrounding community. An additional bonus of Ethiopian food is that it is often vegan and vegetarian friendly, so it is perfect for those with dietary restrictions.
On the menu, you can find Ethiopian favourites like tibs (sliced beef or lamb, pan-fried in butter, garlic and onion), beyaynetu (Ethiopia's most popular vegetarian dish of injera with scoops of colourful vegetables, potatoes, curries, lentils and stews), shiro (a lightly spiced chickpea or bean puree), enkulal firfir (a scrambled egg dish often eaten for breakfast) and so much more!
Here is a list of some wonderful Ethiopian restaurants in Toronto; with majority of them offering takeout and delivery as well!
