From Your First Step in Our Door ~ Ethiopia Greets You!

In addition to our phenomenal Eritrean and Ethiopian cuisine, we also strive to provide you with an authentic atmosphere. A large component of eating Ethiopian food revolves around the giving of gursha. Gursha means “mouthful” and refers to a small morsel of food, which one places carefully in another’s mouth. This is an exciting and somewhat erotic part of the culture. Used as a gesture of affection, Gursha can be exchanged between husband and wife as well as among close friends and relatives. Enabling you to enjoy the custom to the fullest, we extend an invitation for you to experience the art of Gursha when you come to our restaurant.
All you have to do is use the Injera to scoop some Wet into the other person’s mouth. You not only experience the culture, but you show your affection and enjoyment of your date or family.

 Now we have added greek cuisine which reminds us of santorini weddings

Spongy, flat, unleavened bread. Prepared from Teff, wheat, or barley and millet.
An Ethiopian grown grain, rich in minerals.
Spicy or mild sauce, onions, and pepper base with various spices. From cumin, nutmeg, cardamom, and ginger to garlic, sage, curry, and oregano. Wet can be prepared from beef, lamb, chicken, and vegetables.
