REVIEW: Addis-Abeba (CLOSED)

UPDATE: NOW CLOSED

Addis Beyenatu

It’s certainly not shocking that a restaurant called Addis-Abeba would serve Ethiopian food. But there were two surprises for me when we tried it recently:

1. I really like Ethiopian food!

2. Contrary to what I’d been told, this place was not hard to find. And I am really bad with directions…

The restaurant is located in a converted home and the dining area is very clean, bright and well decorated. The owner is very kind (and very patient for those who are clueless in the ways of Ethiopian cuisine) and we took her advice to order a variety of vegetarian and meat dishes with injeera bread, which was like a sourdough crepe. The meals were served in the traditional style on a round platter and we ate, ate, ate and ate.

For about 5000cfa/person there was more than enough – and yet a week later I’m still wishing I could have eaten more! Soon though, soon. I’m going back ASAP. And I’m taking as many friends as I can!

Open Tuesday thru Sunday from noon to 3pm for lunch and 7pm to 10pm for dinner.

Find it on Google Maps here. (I came from the rondpoint Liberté 6 and it was super easy. Just pass the Brioche Dorée and keep going around the curve and look for the sign.)
