Diner from Vancouver

Diner Review • Jan 05, 2013

My boyfriend and I were having a tough time deciding where to have dinner last night, and finally decided to give Addis a try. After being seated we were struggling on understanding the menu items, however, the owner/waiter was most helpful and patient in helping us decide. We started with the vegetable soup which was truly a perpetual sensation to our pallet (VERY GOOD). The injera bread served with every dish is unbelievably simple yet delicious, and not to mention wholesome.

As we finished with the soup our entrees arrived:

The Addis cafe combo: This vegan dish will satisfy you on multiple levels; the food is well spiced without being spicy, and the different flavors tingle your taste buds! Altogether very good. Although the selection limits you to only chick peas or red lentil sauce, at a modest price getting the former or latter is highly recommended

The Kifto: My boyfriend attempted the more adventurous dish which was composed of raw, medium rare or well done beef..My boyfriend and I were having a tough time deciding where to have dinner last night, and finally decided to give Addis a try.

The Kifto: My boyfriend attempted the more adventurous dish which was composed of raw, medium rare or well done beef cooked with a hot pepper oil and served with Ethiopian cottage cheese and a side of spinach. WARNING: the medium rare may seem raw, but it is simply gastronomic bliss! If it isn't to your liking, they will cook it longer to satisfy weak stomachs.

My only regret is not going inside sooner! The owner/waiter was extremely friendly and even joking at some points. He made the whole experience memorable. This place requires more then one visit.
