Zoma Ethiopian in Harlem

  • December 10, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Ethiopian food is mostly stews served on a large thin spongy bread called injera, eaten w/fingers, pieces of bread & NO utensils, often from shared platters. If this bothers you, please don't come! But based on my many previous experiences with this cuisine, others will be rewarded with wonderful tastes and (despite the many famine-related jokes I've heard over the years about Ethiopian food probably being an empty platter) likely leave very full and satisfied.

Menu is here:

I plan to make sure we order a variety of platters, one per person, to be shared as much as possible amongst the omnivores, and the food bill to be split evenly. Some of the entrees may be quite spicy. Estimated cost with tax, tip, and fee: no more than $28 per person, probably less.

** NOTE: This cuisine is particularly good for vegetarians and vegans. Those with dietary restrictions may order and pay separately and eat from their own platters.**

The restaurant is on Frederick Douglass Blvd (essentially CPW), 3 short blocks in a straight line from either of the nearest B or C train stops, which are 110th St/Cathedral Parkway & 116th St.

I recently heard about Zoma from someone who has sampled many and claims it is the best such restaurant in Manhattan. So naturally I have to find out for myself if this is true.

      No problem, Nicole. Just trying to do the best I can with the spots available.

    H everyone--I have updated some RSVPs because of several cancellations. I completely understand if you cannot attend on short notice, or do not wish to travel in this snowy weather, but please change your RSVP to No if that's the case, so I can take as many of the waiting-list people as possible. Thanks!

    Dang, I wish I could expand the size of the group--but the restaurant is small and staff says they can only handle a table of 8. If you have RSVP'd Yes for this meetup and cannot or will not attend, please change your RSVP to No so I can accommodate one of the 9 people currently on the waitlist. Thanks!
