Adey Abeba

The Central District has quite a few Ethiopian and Eritrean restaurants, but one I hadn’t tried before was Adey Abeba. Named for the Meskel daisy (አደይ አበባ) which grows after the Ethiopian rainy season, Adey Abega is located at 2123 East Union. Inside you’ll find an interior a step above many comparable restaurants, with warm yellow walls and widely-spaced tables. Check out their online menu for a glimpse of the offerings. For those new to Ethiopian food, the food is usually eaten with the hands — a thin pancake called injera serves as a kind of edible plate as well as an eating utensil itself. Meat- and vegetable-stews, called wat, are arranged on top of the injera — featuring everything from chicken and beef to carrots and corn. Pictured here is the Adey combination, which at $11 qualfies as one of the city’s best deals in terms of both diversity of flavors and bang for your buck:

    That photo made me really hungry. Must have Ethiopian food moments after I wake up tomorrow!

    Does anyone know if Fasicas (SP?) on Edmunds is still open? Loved their food, cheap prices, the funky low budget family atmosphere and the scratchy speakers playing music.
