Ethiopian food is filled with a variety of spices that allow people who have restrictive diets to indulge as well. Ground cinnamon, cloves, ginger and turmeric grace these flavorful dishes, paired with traditional injera– soft, spongy flatbreads that you use to scoop up each tasty morsel. The menu is naturally gluten-free, reflecting a cuisine noted as one of the world’s most ancient and healthiest. Our restaurant is able to cater to gluten-free, vegetarians, and vegans. We also have takeout and delivery depending on your location. We offer an extensive bar list and in-house made mead along with ceremonial coffee that rounds out each meal.
