    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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.
