If there's one cuisine I crave the most, though, then it's Eritrean. As with Ethiopian cuisine, Eritrean cuisine's mainstay is the fermented, spongy, sour flatbread known as injera, which gets topped with vegetables, meat, and seafood, then eaten out of hand. Unlike Ethiopian food, Eritrean cooking incorporates a number of seafood items and warmer-weather vegetables, like tomatoes and eggplant. In my house, misir wat, a berbere-spiced lentil stew, is the most frequently requested ethnic dish of all. I order it from my favorite restaurant at least once a week, and it's not unheard of for me to eat it for dinner three nights in a row.
