                       Rochester's Unique Dining Experience

Open for Lunch & Dinner

Welcome to Taste of Ethiopia Rochester, where you will enjoy the finest authentic Ethiopian cuisine in the Rochester and surrounding area. When you visit Taste of Ethiopia, you will experience the cultural and social beauty that Ethiopia has to offer.

The Ethiopian cuisine consists of various vegetable or meat side dishes and entrees, often prepared as a wat or thick stew. One or more servings of wat are placed upon a piece of injera, a large sourdough flatbread made out of fermented teff flour.

Dining takes place in a communal setting, where you will eat out of a common plate using your hands, and where no utensils are provided, except for the non-initiated and the non-adventurous upon request. The mesob, a woven round wicker basket that can sit as high as three or four feet tall has a lid, and when you remove it, there’s a place in the center for a tray of food. Each diner sits around on a small stool, about eight inches or more high, called a berchuma and everyone then eats from the common tray of food.

We look forward to the opportunity to bring you a taste of Ethiopia.
