    If you are new to eating Ethiopian food, I recommend the E2 for the meat eaters and the vegetarian sampling for those that don't. Both are pictured here.

    Verified authentic by Ethiopian cab drivers. Go for one of the Taste of Ethiopia combos. Visit for a full list of 50+ authentic ethnic restaurants in Chicago.

    There’s no shortage of brunch options in this town, but few offer doro watt, those addictive, ginger-kissed chicken legs, and yesimir watt (spicy, savory lentils). Read more

    The veggie combo is a great way to explore dishes and it's not badly priced. Our kids love the njerra bread which is naturally gluten free.

    Food was delicious-service atrocious. We had a quick question about the menu & the guy (owner?) actually said "I'm too busy to explain this," and walked away. The waitress later threw napkins at us.

    This place is amazing. Get the Tour or Taste of Ethiopian so you can sample lots of dishes with your table

    Food is yum. Order lamb or chicken with boiled egg. Lentils to die for.. try both Ethiopean and one Kenyan beer.

    If this is your first time here, yes -- eat with your hands. Use the breading to pick up meats and veggies.

    One of the tastiest places in Chicago. I don't think there is a bad item on the menu.

    Taste of Ethiopia was amazing, not sure worth $38 for 2 but great nonetheless.

    I am in love witht the "taste of ethiopia" veggie combo. It is 16$ well spent.

    Awful service. Small portions. Food much better (and cheaper) at Ras Dashen. Skip it.
