Jarra's Ethiopian Restaurant
Dining Ethiopian-style means liking your food, giving up your utensils, and sometimes waiting longer. However, if you are open to a new experience, this establishment is a must. The restaurant is located in a converted house, with pictures of African people and wildlife adorning the walls. Although individual meals are available, most dinners here are served family-style on Injera, African pancake-like bread. Ethiopian stews with or without meat and other dishes are placed on the bread and eaten with your hands. A full bar offers beer, wine and drinks.
Jarra's does an excellent job on Etheopean food. They've been in business for, must be 20+ years which is a testament to the quality of their food in the fast paced world of restaurants. Great food, unique, fun to eat (sans utensils if you want) and really great people.
