Not every meal requires a fork or soup.
In fact, it is totally appropriate to eat with your hands at Nanyea Restaurant and Coffee House, 6129 N Dixie Drive in Harrison Twp., Montgomery County.

The Ethiopian restaurant and its owner, Sofi Kinde, will be featured by Ethnosh during three meals planned in December, an announcement from the organization says.
An off-shoot of Ethnosh based in Greensboro, N.C., Ethnosh Dayton plans monthly dining events called “NoshUps” at immigrant-owned restaurants.
The NoshUp at Nanyea is planned for Sunday, Dec. 15.
The lunch seating will be 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
The first dinner seating is 4 to 5:30 p.m. The second seating is 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The meal is $18 per person plus a small processing fee. Visit ethnosh.org/location/us/oh/dayton.
Forty four spaces are available at each seating.
There is an option to select regular (meat), vegan or vegetarian meals at checkout.
Here are some tips about consuming traditional Ethiopian food from Ethnosh:
- Traditional Ethiopian food is eaten with the hands; this is done by tearing off a piece of injera (Ethiopian flatbread), using it to grab some food, and putting it directly in your mouth.
- Traditional meals are eaten from a communal plate, but you should not reach all the way across to the other side to grab food; eat what is close to you.
- It is polite to eat with your right hand. The left is considered unclean and therefore you should avoid using it if you can.
- There will always be a way to wash your hands before and after the meal.
