Ethiopia is a vegetarian utopia. The majority of people here are Ethiopian Orthodox and ‘fast’ 2 full months and sometimes one day for the rest of the year. Fasting here means no meat, or diary products (i.e. egg, butter, milk, and cheese). Because of this ALL restaurants have vegatarian dishes. Lots of dishes and they are served in a variety of sauces and styles. One of the most popular is called ‘Alicha’ and its served in its only little simmering pot which is brought to you table with injera. This dish can have several variations.
