Addis Red Sea: "Eat your plate" Addis Red Sea Tip by mrdarius

Addis Red Sea, Boston: 3 reviews and 0 photos

This basement-level Ethiopian restaurant is very unique. The small, cozy environment makes you forget that you're in Boston's South End for a minute, and allows you to pretend you're far far away. Not to mention sitting on a low stool at a 'mesab' (a wicker table shaped like an hourglass) and using spongy traditional injera bread as your tablecloth. The food itself is pretty good as far as food goes. Interesting flavors and not too spicy. Try the Ethiopian wine, Dukam.

The music was kind of annoying and the lighting was kinda dim. The waitstaff was very pleasant, and the prices were perfect.

Favorite Dish: I got the 'iab' appetizer (cottage cheese and paprika) and then 'kitfu' (tartar steak) for entree (listed as entrie on the menu). Ellen got a lamb dish. Good, flavorful stuff...a lot of stews.
