Toronto: Ethiopian House

I can't believe it's taken me nearly a month to finally finish commenting on the restaurants of note visited during ACN. This one should do it though and perhaps next year, since I'll be likely revisiting a few favorites, there will be less of an inventory.

Ethiopian House is located at 4 Irwin Ave (just north of Wellesley off Yonge St.). It's another place that we only go when we have sufficient time as the service is slow, but pleasant. The food, though, is incredibly good and we invariably enjoy scooping up the spicy Ethiopian mixes with tasty injera. If you're up for a leisurely dinner with delicious food, I recommend stopping off here.

I like the food here a lot, maybe because it somehow manages to be both similar to and different from the other place we eat with injera, Caffe Adulis in New Haven, CT. Ethiopian House seems more....authentic, maybe, while Caffe Adulis is aiming for a more gourmet feel. Plus there's the fact that Caffe Adulis leans more toward Eritrean than Ethiopian food.

Ethiopian House, the service is too sloooooow and there is only one server/waiter/cashier and he is crunky and rude. Some one even found him cheat b/s he charged him more. Some one else commented on the the attitude of this server (the braided hair server) when the customer pointed out about some issues with the food (veggie stew was not fresh). I know there are other Ethiopian restaurnts, number of them on the Bloor and Ossington area and also on Danforth once your passed Pape some where around Greenwood.
