Addis Red Sea
At Addis Red Sea, waiters top wicker tables with the spicy meats and vegan staples of Ethiopia. They serve lamb and fish dishes infused with spices such as turmeric, ginger, and rosemary. Vegetarian and vegan dishes of hearty lentils, collard greens, and chickpeas are scooped up with traditional injera bread rather than the spoon-shaped potato chips used in many Western cuisines. The waiters encourage patrons to share morsels with one another while they chat and chew around tables woven with reds, greens, and yellows. Though many of the dishes sizzle with the trademark spiciness of east African cuisine, chefs may amend them to the diner's desire.

“Chicken dishes are good-we tried the Sambusa appetizer and would not order that again-the dough was thick and unappetizing, the filling very dry. We also ordered the fish dish and wouldn't get that again; the fish seemed overcooked but it was well seasoned. Thy give plenty of bread for scooping up the different dishes and the combo plate was a large portion. It's a quirky place to visit when in the mood for ethnic food that's a bit different. But be forewarned; seating is rather uncomfortable.”
“The lamb is really good. Not as spicy as I wanted but still good.”
“The red pepper indicating "hot" really means HOT!”
