Eating to Live on the Outside: Abay Ethiopian Cuisine

Posted Oct 10 2008 1:13pm

Alright, it’s Friday. The week’s almost over. Just ONE thing left to do. It’s time for Eating to Live on the Outside. And this week Abay Ethiopian Cuisine is on the menu. It looks pretty good. Plenty of veggie food! Here’s what I like:

Abay House Salad

  • Leaf lettuce, string beans, red onions, tomatoes, peppers and a olive oil and fresh lime juice dressing; limit or omit the dressing and you’re all set.

Tomato Salad

  • Diced tomatoes, onions, peppers and the olive oil-fresh lime dressing; same deal, just WATCH the dressing.

Potato Salad

  • Potatoes, peppers, onions, cinnamon and special house dressing; keep an eye out for that DRESSING!

Indugay Wat

  • Fresh mushrooms, brown lentils and berbere sauce; no problems here.

Kay Sir Dinich

  • Potatoes, fresh beets, garlic, ginger and onions; sounds GREAT, beets kick butt!


  • Brown lentils, onions, green peppers, cumin and lime juice; very nice.

Misir Wat

  • Red lentils simmered in berbere sauce; I like it.

Shiro Wat

  • Ground split peas, lentils and chickpeas simmered in berbere and seasonings; I LOVE those peas!

Kik Alicha

  • Yellow split peas simmered in flavorful sauce; it’s cool, but ask about the sauce before ordering.

Tikil Gomen

  • Lightly spiced cabbage, carrots, onions and tomatoes stewed in a mild sauce; I’d ask about the sauce here too.

Ye’ Abesha Gomen

  • Kale, peppers, ginger, garlic and onions slow-cooked in a mild sauce; again with the sauce, but hooray for KALE!

Wow! All that stuff looks GREAT. I have A LOT of favorites this week! Now, if you’re also having trouble deciding what to order. Combine up to four entrees and SHARE with your tablemates!

I’m digging Abay. It’d DEFINIENTLY work for a nutritarian, but tell me what you think. Check out Abay’s menu and let me know how you handle Eating to Live on the Outside. Make a comment or send an email to Until then, eat right! Peace.
