Ethiopian restaurant

Does anyone around here love Ethiopian food as much as I do? Let me know where you find it!

  1. I don't know where 'around here' is relative to you, but if you're in Philly the only Ethiopian place I know of is Abyssinia.

    1. Try Dahlak...they have restaurants in West Philly and Germantown.

      1. I would eat it all the time if I could, but I moved to the wrong neighborhood--all the Ethiopian food is on the other side of town in West Philly. :(

        Abyssinia, at 45th and Locust, is excellent. I've tried Dahlak on Baltimore Ave., but wasn't as impressed. E.R.A. in Fairmount was very good, but I heard that they don't serve food anymore.

          Hi Gina-can you tell me what E.R.A. was in Fairmount? I never heard of that.

          Thanks, Ryan

            E.R.A. bar is at Poplar and 27th, or thereabouts (about a block away from Northstar Bar). There was a young woman there who served food in a small, very no-frills dining room in the back. It was a wonderful, personal experience, and she was really happy when we ordered coffee post-meal. She treated us to an Ethiopian coffee ceremony, which she set up on the floor and roasted the beans tableside. I wished we'd had the opportunity to go more often.
