Segawot (beef)

Tender sliced steak over a bed of caramelized onion and tomato, slow simmered so it will melt in your mouth and leave a delicious sweet and spicy taste from the 22 Ethiopian spices in its berbere sauce.

How many can you identify?

Dorowot (chicken)

Delicious traditional Ethiopian dish of Abissínia-style lean chicken, hard-boiled egg, onion stewed with tomato, a touch of housemade cheese and mild spices for the most discerning palate.

The Queen of Sheba won the heart of Solomon with this dish. How can you not try it?

Menchetabesh (beef)

The hard part will be leaving some for everyone else.

Tebs (beef)

Beef strips marinated Abissínia style and lightly sautéed in an Ethiopian wok (bretmetad) with butter, caramelized onion, pepper and a touch of rosemary.

And original and irresistible version of one of the most common dishes in Ethiopia.
