    Injera, the spongy crepe-like substance used in Ethiopian restaurants to pick up your bites of food, is supposed to be made with teff flour - which is GF. However many Ethiopian restaurants in the USA add wheat flour to their injera. At Awash, they have teff-only injera available on request. You do have to ask for it, and there’s no GF menu, but most if not all Ethiopian dishes are already GF by their nature. Don’t let the little grocery store in front or the somewhat dingy and unappealing look of the restaurant deter you. This place is known to have some of the best Ethiopian food in San Diego. People line up to eat here on busy nights. You have to be ok with eating in what looks a lot like a hole-in-the-wall restaurant. Sometimes those are the BEST!
