Bahel’s seasoned chefs treat tongues to piled portions of sautéed meats and veggies served atop a large, traditional Ethiopian injera flatbread that is torn and eaten with the hands. Diners first select from a trio of appetizers to whet the sharp edge of hunger, calmed with sambusa’s triangular pastry pockets of lentil or beef, a myriad of diced veggies mixed with bits of injera in the timatim fitfit, or the marinated crunch and edible building materials of the house Bahel salad.
For the main digs, hot awaze sauce washes over prime beef tibs in a spicy tide, and seasoned butter melts into the yebeg tibs’ soft cubed lamb. Chicken and fish tibs quell hearty hankerings with traditional Ethiopian marinades and garnishes of plantmatter dressed as meat. Five varieties of stewed vegetables including collard greens or split peas surround the leafy plumes of a salad on the vegetarian combo platter. This combo’s piping sauces also accompany entrees as sides to ensure a well-balanced meal the recommended daily allotments of essential vitamins, squishy breads, and tibs.
