Ethiopian and Singapore are countries with a strong focus on community. This communal spirit is reflected in the manner in which people from those countries traditionally eat.
Meals are served on platters to be shared among diners. Instead of actual utensils, they use injera as a substitution for a fork or a spoon. Eating like an Ethiopian requires you to tear off a piece of injera, cover the morsel you desire, and scoop it into your mouth in one graceful swoop.
In keeping with traditions, Abyssinia restaurant serves Ethiopian and Singapore Combo cuisine food on a platter with injera as opposed to providing individual plates for each guest (plates and utensils are available upon request). This is an amazing dish hack two different cultures with their traditional food mixes a new kind of tastes.
