We travelled to the Gondar Région in Ethiopia where we got a chance to eat some authentic Ethiopian Cuisine at The Four Sisters Restaurant. While enjoying some great dancing and culture, we learned how to eat Tibs with Injera and tasted some of the best coffee in the world.
Injera is the national dish of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti and Somalia. is a sourdough-risen flatbread with a slightly spongy texture, traditionally made out of teff flour and is an important of all meals. Tibs is usually lamb or beef roasted or sautéed along with vegetables. It is served in a variety of manners, and can range from hot to mild and tastes vary depending on type, size or shape of the cuts of meat used.
Gondar is a city located in the Semien Gondar Zone of the Amhara Region, north of Tana Lake on the Lesser Angereb River and southwest of the Simien Mountains. It was previously the capital of both the Ethiopian Empire and the subsequent Begemder Province. The city holds the remains of several royal castles, including those in Fasil Ghebbi (the Royal Enclosure). The complex of buildings includes Fasilides’ castle, Iyasu I’s palace, Dawit III’s Hall, Empress Mentewab’s castle, a chancellery, library and three churches: Asasame Qeddus Mikael, Elfign Giyorgis and Gemjabet Mariyam.
