[ Brookline Eats: Ethiopian Brunch – Boston, MA]

May 9, 2016

Ethiopian brunch is a thing. I did not know it was a thing. I should give you some context that I’ve loved Ethiopian food my whole life – it’s one of my favorite types of food and my parents lived there for a while, enough to have passed this addiction on to me. So when I spotted Lucy’s on Serious eats, we had to try it.

Arguably the Che’Che’Bsa is the thing to order. While I’ve never personally had a sweet Ethiopian dish so this was a treat. This quinoa like bread bowl is drizzled in honey and has a healthy dollop of greek yogurt to mix with. I highly recommend upgrading with some scrambled eggs as a mix in. We stopped by for a much needed catch up brunch with our friends David and Amy so of course she and I ordered the same thing and the boys ordered a same but separate dish. Photos for your viewing pleasure below.

Ingera, the bread wrapped around Ben and David's delicious brunch (I'd say it tastes similar to a sourdough tortilla)

Yum.

We were in town for a birthday so we swung by our friend’s apartment and continued to snack. This, however, gave us the opportunity to continue exploring Brookline and we made our way to Tatte Bakery. Despite wanting to eat absolutely everything we settled on these snacks:

Despite our very short time in Boston, thought we’d share a few of our foodie stops. Until next time!
