Eat: Pero Restaurant (Winterlicious)

First 2015 Winterlicious participating restaurant to dine at is Pero Restaurant, an Ethiopian restaurant in the Christie Pits neighbourhood, west of downtown.

pero-winterlicious01Appetizer: Pero’s salad with tomatoes, onions, green peppers, lettuce in a simple vinaigrette. Chef Wondiy Special, a chickpea and lentils injera roll.

pero-winterlicious02Main: Fish Dullet with garlic, green chili peppers, herbs and mitmita cardamom. Beef Tibsi with sauteed onions, green chilli peppers and awaze (Ethiopian hot sauce made of various spice blends). Using only your fingers to scoop up the stew and sauce with the injera flatbread.

pero-winterlicious03Dessert: Coffee cake, which is simply a chocolate cake with espresso drizzled on top. Chocolate cake, that should have been called white chocolate cake.

I’ve never had Ethiopian food before, but I am glad to have used Winterlicious as an opportunity to try. It’s definitely both a culinary and convivial experience.
