My brother and his family went to an Ethiopian restaurant while on vacation, and have found a couple in Chicago that they really like. I've never been, but my brother told me that the dishes are highly seasoned and onion is a frequent ingredient. They all come with a flat bread (like a pita, maybe??) that you apparently use as a "pusher". There are lots of vegetable dishes, but there are meat dishes as well.
I like Greek food, too ... dolmades ... the salad of bulghur and onions and feta cheese with olive oil ... spanakopita ... tzatziki ... avgolemono ... pastitsio! Yum!
