It’s not often that eating healthy can taste so good. A trip to Lucy East African Cuisine (mainly Ethiopian) is certainly a pleasurable experience. That’s because there’s so much to try.

BUFFALO, N.Y.―This past Sunday was the first time that I got a chance to try Lucy East African Cuisine (primarily Ethiopian food) since they moved to Riverside from Black Rock. I wasn’t sure what to expect, because now that Buffalo has a few different Ethiopian offerings, I actually feel a bit spoiled.
Lucy was the first Ethiopian restaurant to open in Buffalo. A number of others followed shortly thereafter, which, to me, is heavenly. You see, my wife and I are huge fans of this type of cuisine. First of all, it’s completely different than anything else out there, primarily due to the gluten-free injera bread (like a pancake) that is high in minerals and protein. If you think that’s unique, then you’re going to go crazy for the medley of offerings that come with the veggie combo platter. I find it funny that Ethiopian food is generally considered “meat-heavy”, because we tend to avoid the meat options whenever we eat the cuisine. That’s because the vegetable offerings are so delicious, and don’t weigh us down. Incredibly, even after devouring a veggie combo platter between two people, we don’t feel overly full. That’s because the ingredients are all so healthy.
It’s not often that eating healthy can taste so good. A trip to Lucy is certainly a pleasurable experience. That’s because there’s so much to try. Our lunch, or dinner, always starts off with a small bowl of ‘foul’, which is kind of like a thick bean stew, seasoned with onions, garlic, and jalapeño.
