About Ethiopian Cottage Restaurant
Cottages are common in rural Ethiopia, so it's fitting that Yigletu Debebe and his wife, Almaz Bekele, named their restaurant Ethiopian Cottage. The intimate setting and authentic fare have made it a popular destination, as evidenced by multiple readers' choice awards from Milwaukee Magazine, Shepard Express, and Journal Sentinel. Read on to learn about the traditional Ethiopian cuisine served here:
