Gojo – An authentic Ethiopian experience

My friends and I ended up in Gojo by chance: everyone had heard “rumors” about an excellent Ethiopian restaurant somewhere in Söder, but no one recalled the name nor the address. Eventually, after a quick brainstorm with our phones, we found the place.

The restaurant is on a corner at the end of Ringvägen: beside some decorations and a gazebo right in the middle of the dining hall, what struck me the most was the fact that the place was full of “local” African customers, which gave us a confirmation that we were in the right place (or at least in a good one). Indeed we were!

Most of the main courses are served in a ‘mesob’, a traditional handmade round and super colorful basket that serves as a plate, and all meals are also accompanied by ‘injiera’, the typical thin, soft bread. According to the Ethiopian culture, you are not supposed to eat alone: you share the food with others from the same ‘mesob’, and you all eat with hands: no forks, nor knife (well, I think you can get them if you ask politely :)). Everything was excellent: the veggies were simply boiled yet tasty, the meat was juicy and tender, and overall there was a well balanced amount of spices in all plates.

It’s a must-go but, before going, make sure to select the right person to go with: as an Ethiopian saying claims: “Those who eat form the same plate will not betray each other.”
