Habesha Restaurant - Addis Ababa

Bole Road, Addis Ababa
Habesha Restaurant is located on Bole Road near Wollo Sefer junction in a candlelit tukul – which is a traditional hut with low wooden tables. The waitresses are pretty girls dressed in white cotton dresses and they approach you with a silver tray and a pitcher. This is warm water and soap for washing your hands because they don’t serve food with cutlery so your hands have to be clean. They then light an incense stick on your table, this is another of Ethiopia’s tradition. The restaurant specialty is injera served with sautéed spinach with caramelized onions, spicy potatoes with red peppers, yellow lentil hummus, fried green beans with garlic, mashed chili peppers, refried beans with tangy pepper, crushed chickpeas and a crisp, green salad.
