Traditional Food in Ethiopia w. Mark Wiens

Today was a little bit of a random day in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, searching for delicious Ethiopian food. I first met up with Sam, and he took me a little outside of town, an area known for their meat. We asked some locals around, and found a local meat restaurant that everyone agreed was the best in the city. Dulet – Dulet is an Ethiopian food of minced up raw organs, sauteed in Ethiopian spiced butter. It’s incredibly delicious. The the man sitting next to me ordered shekla tibs, a pan of sliced meat fried and served in a charcoal clay pan. It was very chewy, but tasty. Total price – 230 ETB ($8.31) including drinks Tej – Tej is traditional Ethiopian honey wine, and after asking, some people told us there was a local Ethiopian bar just down the road. It was quite an Ethiopian cultural experience. Price – 9 ETB ($0.33) per cup El Shaday Restaurant – Finally, we returned to Addis Ababa, in the center of the city, and searched out an Ethiopian food that I had desperately wanted to eat – called Tihlo. It’s a dish from Tigray, very rare to find in Addis Ababa, and even the friends I was eating with, who are all Ethiopian, had never heard of it, or tried it. So it was a first for all of us. Turned out to be incredibly delicious, and now one of my favorite new Ethiopian dishes. Price – 80 ETB ($2.89) Thank you for watching this unique Ethiopian food tour in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!
