Most traditional Ethiopian food is eaten with the hands; this is done by tearing off a piece of injera, using it to grab some food, and putting it directly in your mouth. 


Traditional meals are eaten from a communal plate, but you should not reach all the way across to the other side to grab food; eat what is close to you.

-It is polite to eat with your right hand - the left is considered unclean and therefore you should avoid using it if you can.

3. There will always be a way to wash your hands before and after the meal. Sometimes a waiter will bring a basin and pitcher to the table.

4. When greeting people at a restaurant, often they will have already washed their hands, or they will already eating. In place of a handshake, they will offer you their wrist; lightly grasp their wrist but do not shake it. If your hands aren’t suitable for a handshake either, you can touch your wrist to theirs.
