Ethiopian Famous Restaurant & Coffee

4111 E. McDowell Rd Phoenix, AZ 85008 | East Phoenix | 602-275-5663

Location Description:

This exceptional Ethiopian restaurant in East Phoenix features enticing scents, bold flavors, and warm — if somewhat language-challenged — service, courtesy of owner Abebech Ejersa, an Ethiopian immigrant who arrived in the Valley a few years ago. Traditional wat platters are the go-to dish, but hot bowls of fragrant yebeg tibs (lamb marinated in garlic and rosemary) and kaywot yesiga (cubed beef with a slightly Southwestern flavor) also are excellent. Be sure to check out Ejersa's traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, as important to your dining experience as the meal itself.
