The Ethiopian staple is Injera, a sour pancake made from soughum. The injera is very flat and always laid out in a huge pan. Various dishes are poured onto the injera so that one would tear a piece of injera and use that to grab the food poured onto the injera. Some travelers love it so much and eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, like the Ethiopians do. To be very frank, I got quite sick of it after a few days. The Ethiopians also go vegetarian during various religious festivals. Outside of Addis, I sometimes feel desperate over inability to find meat and having to eat pasta and injera day after day.
Here's a picture of the Mixed Tourist Injera dish I ordered one day. Costs only US$2.50! Enormous portion!
