Zigni House

330 Essex Road

London, N1 3PB

C and I both love Ethiopian food so it was easy to convince her to try Zigni House around the corner from me. A and I tried it once when we first moved here and thought it was ok but that portions were a bit small. This time, C and I had plenty of food and came out stuffed. We ordered the vegetarian sampler for two, and one order of the special kitfo as well (described as finely chopped lean beef seasoned with hot chili pepper and spiced clarified butter served with home-made cottage cheese and spinach). Now that I'm looking at the menu, I'm not sure we got the cottage cheese and spinach part. Hmm. The vegetarian sampler included a ground chickpea dish, a red lentil dish, a chopped spinach dish and a cabbage, potato and carrot dish. While everything tasted good, I think there are other places I still like better for Ethiopian, like Lalibela. Still, it's location is convenient, so I wouldn't be surprised if I end up here again.
