NileGuide Expert tip:
For dessert, try the delightful vegan orange coffee cake.
This award-winning Ethiopian restaurant offers flavorful cuisine rich in vegetables, legumes, chicken, beef, and shrimp. Slow simmering stews, crunchy samosas
, and roasted meats wrapped in spongy, homemade injera
bread are just some of the traditional delights at this favorite Tempe restaurant. Popular appetizers include the vegan Red Sea hummus and Goat Cheese and Plantain. Vegans and carnivores can happily co-exist at the Blue Nile Cafe, where bean and vegetarian dishes infused with aromatic spices and sauces are dished out along with such classic plates as doro wat
, tender chicken in a thick berbere sauce
. No utensils are required--simply scoop up the savory ingredients with the injera
bread and enjoy.
