It tastes like Indian Food, but not quite as flavorful.

it’s kinda similar to indian, but instead of rice there is a spongy bread you use to sop up the food.

i disagree with the two previous posters; ethiopian food tastes nothing like indian food, but the process of eating it is incredibly similar—soupy, stewy vegetable/legume/meat dishes “sopped up” with pancake-like sponge bread; everything is eaten with one’s hands. it’s very much a ritual.

I like the food but the bread has a strange texture – it feels like flesh/skin to me and I cannot eat it.
