What Your Taste Buds Should Expect
The roots of Ethiopian cuisine can be traced back to 1500 BCE. The ancient way of eating includes a variety of spices and sauces. Most meals come with a kick of flavor, but often they can be ordered so that the taste is mild. Injera, a traditional type of flatbread, is used as an eating utensil. After your meal has been served at Gojo Ethiopian Restaurant, simply tear off a piece and use it as a scoop. While you won’t find pork or shellfish in Ethiopian restaurants, there is an abundance of meat dishes served with beef, lamb, or chicken. With menu items conscious of special diets, vegetarians won’t have any trouble making a selection.
Highlights from the Menu
Gojo Ethiopian Restaurant has a wide selection of moderately priced lunch and dinner entrées. Among the Gojo Specials is the Special Kitfo, a dish of chopped lean beef served with spiced pepper and collard greens. Another exciting choice is the Bozena Shiro, cubed beef with chickpeas that have been cooked in a hot berbere sauce. The Yebeg Tibbs is simply addicting. This dish of cubed lamb meat can be ordered with or without hot awaze, a spice. If Ethiopian cuisine is new to you, you may want to try tej, an Ethiopian honey wine.

Top Tip: Coffee lovers should try the Ethiopian coffee at the end of your meal. Order it ahead of time and request the “full ceremony” for your coffee to be served in the traditional Ethiopian way.
