Ethiopian Dinner in Brussels

Luckily most of the restaurants in Europe include a menu posted outside, so I can easily see if there are any vegetarian options for me. Most restaurants in Brussels didn't have many options, so I knew when I read about an Ethiopian restaurant in our Lonely Planet Guide, we had to go. The restaurant was Kokob and if you are ever in Brussels, I highly recommend it.

We were seated in the back by the kitchen. The service was pretty awful, it took forever for someone to come over to us and take our drink orders. However the great food made up for it.


Steve started with a Duvel.


I started with a cherry flavored brew, which I really enjoyed.


Steve and I shared all vegetarian options, and it was good as Ethiopian always is. I think I order the same dished that I would normally order at the Ethiopian restaurant in Pittsburgh. Including potatoes and beetroots in a rich tomato sauce, carrots and beans cooked in a mild sauce, and a lentil dish. In the middle is an avocado salad.


I think one great thing about globalization is that normally when traveling to unfamiliar cities, there will be a large variety of ethnic restaurants, so even though the traditional Belgium food wasn't very vegetarian friendly, I knew I could find ethnic food to please my palate!

I have plenty more to post about my European adventures, so hope you come back tomorrow for more!
