Being vegetarian, Ethiopian is one of the friendliest ethnic cuisines for us to enjoy. We are longtime fans of Queen Sheba, but having heard good things about Adey Abeba, we decided to give this walkable restaurant a try yesterday. Adey Abeba has nice curb appeal, and the inside has a cheery coat of light yellow paint. Ethiopian art bedecks the walls and ivory cotton curtains with a subtle print drape windows left open to a gorgeous evening yesterday. The restaurant gets its name from an Ethiopian flower, the Meskel Daisy. Staples of a family-run ethnic restaurant abound at Adey Abeba: silk flowers, television tuned to Wheel of Fortune and occasional confusion during guest-host exchanges. We each had a “Vegi Combination” ($10) served in the same platter which consisted of split peas sauce, red lentil hot sauce, shiro wot (ground peas spiced with berbere, seasoned with onions, garlic, and ginger), cabbage, salad and collard greens. We did not spy alcohol on the menu, but when we inquired about beer and wine, we were told that St. George beer ($3 per bottle!) was available. Unfortunately, they were out of Tej (honey wine). Adey Abeba’s “Vegi” plate is as flavorful as Queen Sheba’s but has more variety in terms of the types of stews served. We will definitely return – perhaps to try their breakfast offering.
