2-      Addis Restaurant: This well-designed restaurant features sunset coloured walls, Ethiopian artifacts and an area for traditional-style eating from mesabs (handwoven dome-topped tables). It’s a popular venue for clusters of East African men, who converge at lunchtime to chat, smoke or sip traditional coffee. It’s also quite a good catch-all for tourists, being just a few minutes from King’s Cross station. There’s a lot to choose from on the menu, with almost 30 main meal options including chicken stews and minced beef dishes, but only one fish dish: samak muhamar, deep-fried snapper cooked in spiced batter, with fresh salad. It wasn’t bad, although the fish can be boney. The meat offerings are sturdier, such as tibs fer fer; cubes of lean lamb fried in onions and served with enjera. Vegetarian options are more imaginative, with fuul musalah, an East African dish of crushed fave beans topped with feta cheese and falafal and sautéed in sesame oil, looks particularly appealing. Addis Ethiopian Restaurant is located in Northwest London. There contact details are as follows:

3-      Lalibela Restaurant: Lalibela charms from the moment you cross the threshold and smell the coffee beans roasting by the bar. It resembles the home of an eccentric africophile uncle: full of carvings, figurines, textiles, instruments and portraits of elegant Ethiopian luminaries. The smiling and attentive manager is keen to recommend dishes and explain how they can be served (on a very fine circle of injera). Unlike most Ethiopian/Eritrean restaurants, Lalibela doesn’t offer sharing platters, but the menu is long and there are plenty of adventurous house specials. To start, Lalibela salad – beetroot and potato served warm – was tangy and sweet, and spiced chicken salad packed a punch. For mains, we tried fried lamb with spinach and spring greens, as well as a little separate pot of spiced couscous, just in case we developed injera fatigue. Tofu spinach tibs (tibs are sautéed dishes) was deliciously savoury, if very oily. Fried fish tibs, with tomatoes and peppers, was delicately flavoured with rosemary and lemon juice and went well with shiro (peas, shallots and hot spices). It was a hot and steamy night, so we eschewed the coffee ceremony in favour of a couple of cold St George beers (from Ethiopia).

5-      Finding the right restaurant for Ethiopian food can be very tedious. Many of the restaurants have websites, which I’ll note, and some of the websites have menus. All of the restaurants on this list were still open at the beginning of 2010. But sometimes and website long outlives a restaurant – another reason to call first. Almost 32 million Americans will have to cross state lines, international borders or the Pacific Ocean to get Ethiopian food. The nation’s 22 most populous states have Ethiopian or Eritrean restaurants, but residents of 12 states have no such option: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, West Virginia, Wyoming – and of course, Alaska, which actually had one for a few months in 2007. Vermont now has a restaurant where you can get Ethiopian food one night a week. Rhode Island, New Mexico and Mississippi each got its first restaurant in 2011, a sign of the cuisine’s growing popularity.
