This is your sign to try Ethiopian food! Abugida will be one of the best places to experience Ethiopian food. The vegetable Sampler is a great way to try all kinds of different vegetarian sides. Its mainly lentils, potatoes and greens! It has Indian influence and you can taste the curry in the dishes. The beef tips are a good way to try a very traditional African meal, they were so flavorful and mixing it with greens was just the bet combination! When you go there ask for the African honey wine. I dont believe its on the menu! It was so good. If you had Mead before, it will remind you of it. Just be a little patient with the service, its a small family run business!

The service was great and the server was very patient as it was our first time. Thanks! I had the Beef Abugida Feast. When I tell you everything was perfectly seasoned. The flavors meshed very well. I also tried Ethiopian coffee for the first time as well and from the time it hits your tongue there is a burst of flavor that Starbucks could never emulate.
So this was my first time having Ethiopian food. Good Lord this was absolutely DELICIOUS!! So many different flavors and textures. I've been wanting to try this place out for a while and finally had the opportunity to do so. I can absolutely say I will be back sooner than later. Mom and pop feel in a quaint dining room setting. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
Excellent little place. Open until 8PM. Delicious food. People who know the area know this place is good. I got one of the tiny espressos and put both little packets of sugar in there. Amazing cup of coffee. I also got a vegetarian sampler dish. Superb. Great food. If you don't know about Ethiopian food, get ready to use your hands.
