The menu ranges from vegetarian dishes including alicha wot––yellow split peas in turmeric sauce ($7.95)––to the specialty zil zil tibs, charcoal-broiled strips of beef with garlic and rosemary ($14.95). The lunch menu features the same dishes as the dinner menu, but portions are smaller and items are half price.
Nile Ethiopian Restaurant
Paintings by a local Ethiopian artist, servers clad in traditional Ethiopian dresses, and the signature spice blends of turmeric, fennel, and cardamom help patrons to immerse themselves in a traditional Ethiopian dining experience. Instead of silverware, diners use disks of injera, a spongy flatbread, to scoop up mouthfuls of the flavorful lamb, lentil, and fish dishes that emerge from the kitchen. Although the chefs keep their flavors close to home by making cottage cheese in-house and evaporating seawater in the ovens to make salt, they also seek out Ethiopian beers and wines for even more authentic flavors from the Horn of Africa.
