The friendly chefs at Addis Red Sea earned a Zagat rating for their menu of flavorful, sharable Ethiopian dishes seasoned to the diner's spicy inclinations. Duos can stamp their taste-bud passports with an appetizer such as the dibulbul tips, a succulent blend of marinated ground beef, onions, green peppers, and traditional spices. The butecha vegetarian entree joins together oil, lemon juice, black pepper, and green pepper with chickpea paste in a savory, herbivorous union. Much like an accommodating radio DJ, the doro wat combination plates can be sautéed in olive oil or butter at the diner's request, granting a more healthful way to enjoy the mélange of lemon-marinated chicken, red pepper sauce, and trio of vegetarian dishes. Colorful rugs and traditional decorations deck the spacious eatery, where diners cluster around large, shared plates set in traditional Ethiopian baskets.
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.
