Guests of all nationalities are invited to join us for a delicious meal, and to experiment with authentic Ethiopian food.
Ethiopian cuisine characteristically consist of spicy vegetable and meat dishes, usually in the form of wat (or wot), a thick stew, served atop Injera a large sourdough flat bread. Injera bread is about 50 centimeters (20 inches) in diameter and made out of fermented Teff flour, a grain native to Ethiopia. Ethiopians eat with their hands, using pieces of Injera to pick up bites of entrées and side dishes. Utensils are rarely used with this dish.
While most of the entrees include Beef,Lamb, Chicken and Fish, our dishes are perfect for vegetarian and vegan eaters.
We are also unique in that we have a whole menu that serves a variety of crepes! While it's non traditional, it works!
We look forward to serving you soon.
