After spotting this new African restaurant in the Victoria & Westmount area of Kitchener (in the Victoria Hills Plaza on Hazelglen, beside ONKAR Foods), my wife and I popped in after work just after 8 pm on a Thursday evening, hoping to be able to try a couple of dishes before the restaurant closed at 9 pm.
K-W African Cuisine offers food from Ethiopia in East Africa. Although not as intimate and cozy as Kitchener’s other Ethiopian restaurant (Muya Restaurant on Highland Rd), the décor is colourful, there was authentic Ethiopian music playing in the background (I always appreciate the appropriate ethnic music in ethnic restaurants!), there were about a dozen other patrons in the place (who appeared to be of East African descent, which was encouraging), and the owner was warm and welcoming.
The menu is more limited than Muya’s, but was attractive and still offered a good selection of dishes.
We ordered the Doro Wot (chicken cooked in butter & sautéed onions and seasoned with garlic, fresh ginger, berbere & herbs, and served with lots of spicy, savoury sauce and a boiled egg) and Beef Tibs (tender pieces of marinated beef cooked with peppers, onions, garlic, tomato, and spices).
To be honest, having eaten at the Muya several times, we were not expecting the food here to attain quite that level of taste. Boy, were we surprised! Both meals were absolutely delicious! And the bill for the two dishes came to $30 before tip. Needless to say, we will be back to try some of their other offerings!
Highly recommended. Give them a try!
