I'd been to several ethiopian restaurants in the Toronto area in the past and really enjoyed them, so when I found out that Hamilton was getting it's own I was pretty excited. I've visited Wass several times now and have had a great experience each time, the food is spectacular and the owners are overwhelmingly welcoming and friendly- who needs Toronto! My friends and I usually order the vegetarian platter to share, plus some extra orders of our favourite dishes. Standouts for me are Keyser and Dinitch (beets and potatoes in turmeric sauce) and the Misir Alichah (lentil stew).
If you're a coffee lover, the coffee ceremony at the end of the meal is a must, it's sublime.
I cannot recommend this restaurant any more highly to people- vegans, vegetarians, omnivores, and spice lovers/phobics alike. I'm getting hungry just writing this. yum.
