    ~ Main Courses ~

    All our dishes are served with home-made injerã . Injerã is a soft unleavened 'crèpe-like' sourdough bread made of a cereal grain known as tef (Eragrostis tef ) . Tef , which is a member of the lovegrass genus, is cultivated as a staple crop only in Ethiopia. Traditionally, one eats with one's bare fingers using small pieces of the injera to wrap up delicious mouthfuls or 'gursha' of the wide array of traditional meat and vegetable stews or 'wett' , customarily laid out on a bed of injerã .

    In Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia, the word for 'companion' or 'friend' -- bal'ínjerã -- also literally translates as 'someone with whom one shares bread'. Among Ethiopians, eating is always a lively and much-enjoyed social event. Family and friends often eat from the same platter which is usually set on a hand-made traditional injerã basket table known as a messob .

    In the near future, Moya will be offering this full cultural dining experience, i.e. 'The Traditional Gebeta " - wherein guests can opt to be seated on low wooden stools around one of our traditional messobs .

    In the meantime, our guests are invited to enjoy Moya 's more contemporary version of Ethiopian dining etiquette - i.e. single-platter group dining while seated at a conventional table.

    SHOULD YOU PREFER TO BE SERVED ON INDIVIDUAL PLATES, PLEASE INFORM YOUR SERVER WHEN MAKING YOUR ORDER.
