Pero Restaurant & Lounge
812 Bloor St. W, Toronto
Type: African, Ethiopian
Come & join us as we have newly renovated.Pero Restaurant is as rich and diverse as Eastern African culture. The spectrum Pero Restaurant cuisine can be said to lie between two dietary extremes: vegetarianism and meat-eating. The essence of good Eastern African cooking revolves around the appropriate use of aromatic spices. The skill lies in subtle blending of a variety of spices to enhance, rather than overwhelm the basic flavour of a particular dish. Pero food relies on the spices in which it is cooked, just as Japanese Sushi relies on the freshness of the meat, and Chinese food relies on the various sauces to impart the right flavour and taste. It is interesting to see an Eastern African chef at work, with a palette of spices, gratuitously sprinkling these powders in exact pinches into the dish in front of him. It is these complexities of regional food in Eastern Africa that make it a so very fascinating experience.We at the Pero aim to bring the most traditional dishes from all corners of Eastern Africa, maintain the classic Eritrean recipes and enhance the offering with some signature dishes to reflect the changing food trends in modern Africa.We will gladly prepare a dish you require that does not appear on the menu, time permitting. The menu is designed by Award Winning chef Wondiy Beshir.

Sheba Ethiopian Restaurant
418 College St, Toronto

Tucked next to the well known Pomegranate on College Street is one of Toronto's best kept secrets, Sheba Restaurant. The food is spicy and interesting and the space warm and welcoming. Ethiopian food is all about sharing, so take a band of friends and tuck into a communal platter with an array of dishes and injera bread. Eating with your fingers is typical and makes the experience that much more fun. Favorite dishes include ground split chickpea sauce cooked with onions served in a clay pot called shiro, a vegetarian platter featuring six dishes and kifko which is a traditional dish like steak tartare. Or, go for a combo platter so that you can sample a bit of everything. Dishes are tangy with spicy mustard flavors taste unique to the region. Top it all off with traditional Ethiopian coffee, chat to the beautiful sisters Assi and Sebi who run Sheba Restaurant and add to the exotic atmosphere.
