Eating from the same plate in Ethiopia is a symbole of Love.


Eating from the same plate is one of the most common dietary social customs in Ethiopia. The custom also carries strong significance in Ethiopian social culture.

If one Ethiopian (let’s say Mr. A) is already eating in the restaurant when his buddies enter the restaurant, they all wash their hands, order their share at the counter, go back to Mr A’s table, and eat together with Mr A no matter how small Mr A’s food is left. It is also quite common for friends to order all their shares to arrive on one big plate, which usually comes with different dipping sauces.
The other alternative is removing the existing empty plate, and putting the newly arrived order in place at the middle of the group and resume eating all together while chatting, laughing and discussing about life, business, education, religion, culture etc… When the bill arrives, they either share the bill or one of the members with higher earning pays the entire bill and they leave the restaurant.Paying for one another is also one of the most common dietary social culture in Ethiopia.

Inviting someone during lunch, dinner or coffee/tea hours is one of the regular customs commonly exercised in Ethiopia. When one goes from one corner of the country to another, there is always warm welcome and smiles even when they do not have anything to offer.

How much do you know about Ethiopian Sociable food?

Experts figure that it is not only what we are eating that matters for our wellbeing but also how we eat. Ethiopia is one of the countries tend to emphasize eating as a social occasion and as a blessed time for relaxation or celebration to be enjoyed with loved ones. Ethiopia have a distinctly communal-style of eating. Enjera and wat (sauce) are laid out on large platters and groups crowd around to share from the same dish. Ethiopians eat with their hands, tearing off chucks of Enjera to pick up spoonsful of spicy stew. It is also customary for Ethiopians to feed each other in this way (presumably so companions can sample wat dishes that are out of reach on the other side of the platter).

The brewing process may be different from any you’ve seen before. First, green (unroasted) coffee beans are carefully browned in a shallow pan over a flame, followed grounding by hand with a mortar and pestle style contraption. The grounds are then boiled with hot water in a clay pot called a jebena, and served in tiny cups, typically alongside freshly popped popcorn.
