  1. This is awesome !!!

    Tell me that you have fresh Njara along with fine tibes (Ye Chekena and Ye beg), Fish Gulag and Firfir (non-fasting of course). Are people only allowed in on the reservation basis / or can one just show up? Coffee ceremony with Habesha coffee ? Are Habesha people there?

  2. Fresh njara, fine tibs, firfir and traitional coffee of course but no fish gulag
    the owner and the reponsible for the restaurant are habesha. You can come whenever you want without reservation. See you there then!
