Hungry, and have a taste for divine adventure? then Bati is for you! Ethiopian cuisine has become more and more popular over the last decade and we are happy to share two great Brooklyn spots with you.
Bati is located on 747 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11217 in Ft. Greene and is the only kitchen that I know of that can boast having the “Black Injera”, which is a delicacy back on the continent. This cozy little spot nestled on the bustling Fulton Street has proven itself to be a destination restaurant for #foodies and adventurous palettes. I think a key component that sets them apart from the other dining in Ft.Greene is their unique offering of a rare ingredient that makes Black Teff Injera.
Here’s a tip: You can’t just walk in and get the black teff injera so call ahead a few days and request it with your reservation…. yes, a few days, and they’ll have it prepared for you when you arrive with your party. It’s well worth it!
Another personal favorite of mine for more than 20 years is the Ethiopian restaurant AWASH, which started on the upper west side and now with a third restaurant finally located in Brooklyn at: 242 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11201. I can’t say enough great things about the head chef at Awash, She’s been my “go-to” for more than 20 years at each of her locations. She’s been community driven and a staple now in west Harlem, The East Village, and now in Boerum Hill. This place boast the most Amazing Chef, and I’m honored to say that we have so much history!!
Last but certainly not least is the jamming live music dining experience you’ll find at Bunna Cafe, located in Bushwick at 1084 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11237, near Maria Hernandez Park. Bunna Cafe has quickly become the Go-to for the neighborhood College students and newcomers to the community. Nonetheless this place has a great live tea ceremony, live music and a lively staff that are eager to ensure you have what you need. If you’re near Bushwick and looking for a great adventure for your palate then look no further.
