Dashen (formally Desta) Ethiopian Cuisine specializes in delicious and reasonably priced Ethiopian food. Our cuisine entre`es are served in a relaxed and welcoming setting that you, your friends, and your family are sure to enjoy.
Ethiopian cuisine characteristically consists of spicy vegetable and meat dishes, usually in the form of wat (or wot), a thick stew, served atop Injera (a large sourdough flatbread). Injera bread is about 20 inches in diameter and made out of fermented Teff flour, a grain native to Ethiopia. Ethiopians eat with their hands, using pieces of Injera to pick up bites of entre`es and side dishes. Utensils are rarely used with this dish.
While most of the entre`es include beef, lamb, chicken, and fish, our dishes are perfect for vegetarian and vegan eaters.
We are also unique in that we have a whole menu that serves a variety of crepes! While it's non-traditional, it works!
We look forward to seeing you soon.
