Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant in Ann Arbor (and Ferndale) offers a unique dining experience. Central to Ethiopian dining is eating from the same plate and sharing the same bread (called injera). The injera, a flat, tangy, crepe-like bread, made with self-rising wheat flour or teff and water. By pinching a bite-sized piece of injera, you can use it to scoop up chunks of food, placing it into your mouth or that of your partner — which is considered a gesture of affection (called gursha). Traditional American utensils are available on request!
Ethiopian food is naturally low fat due to preservation issues and their menu includes poultry, lamb, beef and a wide range of vegetarian dishes. They also feature a full bar, the spicy teas of the country and (of course) Ethiopian Coffee!
Note that Quality is guaranteed by Seifu Lessanwork, personal butler to His Majesty, the Emperor of Ethiopia!
