CHICAGO – In a multi-ethnic city, there is always something new and exciting to try in the area of food. Now, there is something truly unique for any foodie or adventurous eater.
Selam Ethiopian Kitchen is a fresh and unique taste on a very unique African country. Specializing in dishes from this eastern African country, diners will no doubt have their extreme tastes of the exotic tested.
Solomon Abebe, owner, had this to say about his restaurant fare, “Selam’s signature dishes, along with the rest of the menu, provide an opportunity for the best kind of eating.”
Besides the rich, exotic foods, attendees will learn the traditional method of Ethiopian dining, which will be an experience to itself.
There are no forks or knives. Spoons are scarce. Diners use pieces of a flat bread, injera, to scoop into the stew-like communal dish in front of you. Repeat as necessary until filled, or the food is gone.
“Many who come to dine with us are somewhat put back because of the way we eat in my country. Once you try it, you will find it is not so bad and is actually a very fun and entertaining way to enjoy a meal,” continued Abebe.
Selam Ethiopian Kitchen is also a completely organic dining establishment. All of the food prepared is organic, and Abebe buys locally as often as he can.
“My neighbors support me and my restaurant; the least I can do is support them back,” said Abebe.
Selam accepts reservations. They are open Tuesday – Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday – Sunday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
