Ethiopian Cuisine

Abay is Pittsburgh's only Ethiopian restaurant. It serves about 10 traditional vegan Ethiopian dishes, as well as some soups and a few appetizers, served on (or with) injera - spongy Ethiopian flatbread which also functions as the eating utensil.

Abay is a large restaurant with many tables, and also has 3 mesobs, traditional hand-woven, basket-like tables for those who want a more authentic Ethiopian dining experience.

I really like this place a lot. The food is really good and relatively healthy. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the decor is nice.
