Ethiopian Famous Restaurant & Coffee

Thanksgiving is a shared meal, so why not move the sentiment into Ethiopian cuisine at Abebech Ejersa's new East Phoenix home of enticing scents and bold flavors. 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. Java lovers should make sure to call ahead and reserve a spot at Ejersa's must-experience Ethiopian coffee ceremony.
