Often filled with Ethiopian diaspora this restaurant provides real Ethiopian food at reasonable prices. The lalibela platter is a combination of stewed meats and veggies that you mop up with injera - a type of pancake-like bread. Yummy !

The vegetarian platter was enough for two people and included a combination of splint peas, lentils, chick peas, cabbage, collard greens, vegetables, and hilbet (mixer of beans, garlic, ginger, and fenugreek).

The kitfo was also served in the vegetarian platter. We were also given a plate of injera (it was folded up and warm). To eat it, you tear off the injera and use it to scoop up whatever you wanted on the platter. The red powder in the small container was some spice that you could use to sprinkle on your food before you ate it.

I liked the kitfo. It was different from usual steak tartare because it was lukewarm and a little spicy. It was very lean and meaty and I didn’t detect the butter in it at all.

Great vegetarian dishes, which thrilled my daughter. I had the #22 lamb dish with the "chef's special sauce" and it was wonderful and delicious. But it was WAY too much for me! It came with a great tasting salad and plenty of injera. Very reasonable prices. Service was good at the beginning but really slow when we were ready to leave. We waited far too long to get our check and that left us with a sour taste, unfortunately.

Thank Julieroadtrip
