Elsa Restaurant

Ethiopian in Addis Ababa

This simple outdoor restaurant receives high marks from locals, expats and tourists alike for its quality Ethiopian fare. The yetsom beyaynetu (variety of fasting foods) is perfect for vegetarians, while yedoro arosto (roast chicken) and gored gored (raw, cubed and unmarinated meat) or tere sega (raw meat) assuage carnivorous cravings. Half the neighbourhood comes here for an afternoon drink. After dark, take a taxi to and from the door.
