“unique taste of Ethiopian dishes”
Blue Nile is a family owned restaurant and has been open since 1994. We have been nominated as one of the best ethnic restaurant among the Houston community. Food lovers will enjoy the unique taste of Ethiopian dishes in a warm and friendly environment. We serve our traditional dishes with Injera bread that is 100% made of teff. Injera is a soft spongy pancake-like bread made out of teff flour. It is traditionally served in Ethiopia where a variety of stews, meat dishes and salads, are placed upon the injera. Teff, an Ethiopian Staple, is the smallest grain in the world, yet it contains giant nutrition. It's high in protein, iron and minerals with a calcium content more than 17 times that of wheat or barley.
Fragrant smoke drifts through the air as you reach for another handful of popcorn. Coffee is poured from the clay pot and you are transported. This, of course, comes after your meal. You've already had your fill of doro wat, a spicy chicken stew scooped up with hanks of spongy, slightly sour injera bread. Fans of tartare won't want to miss the kitfo or gored gored, alternately minced and cubed raw beef seasoned with a fiery version of the Ethiopian staple berbere spice blend. The incense lit during the after-meal coffee ceremony is meant to promote meditation, but the food is just as likely to get the job done.
