Makeda Ethiopian Restaurant
Type of Cuisine: Ethiopian

Meal Eaten: Breakfast/Brunch Lunch Dinner


They have a wonderful menu with food choices for everyone from lamb, beef, chicken, seafood, and vegetarian. Food can be spicy but you can request that the chef tone down the spice. Dan had the vegetable platter on which you get five vegetables and Michelle had spicy fish. Both diners were extremely pleased with their meals. Dan especially loved his mesir wat (red lentils cooked with some delicious spices).

For those of you unfamiliar with Ethiopian dining, food is served on a communal platter for those dining together. Traditionally, food is not eaten with utensils but with a flatbread called injera (You can request utensils if you like). The food is served on one platter to promote sharing and a sense of family.

This is our favorite Ethiopian restaurant. It's beautiful place with a great African decor. If you make your reservations online, you get a free drink at the restaurant.
