This past Sunday I finally got a chance to check out the Ethiopian bar/restaurant CLUB ZION in Itaewon! I’ve been wanting to go for ages, like for years, but then at one point they stopped serving food all together so I gave up. But then they recently reopened the restaurant, so I couldn’t wait to finally get my fill. The only thing is that the restaurant side is only open on weekends (Saturday and Sunday, open at noon). Lucky for me, PLANT is closed on Sundays so I can eat there on my day off. Yeaerz.
They have several options on their menu, but most of the time, there’s only two options actually available: the vegetarian platter and one of the meat-included options For 10,000 you get a ginormous plate of injera (the Ethiopian spongy sour crepe), with various veggie items on top like beets, lentil curry, cabbage, sautéed greens…. Wow.
Everything is great, and the injera is legit! Some items are more flavorful than others but it’s nice to get so much variety with one order. No utensils provided, so wipe your hands clean on the wet napkins they provide and then get messy again. :)
And you can even get it to-go! Check out this amazingness that one of my friends brought for me one Saturday when I was working at PLANT. Awesome tasty food, delivered straight to my mouth. Man, I have the best friends.
