I'd heard about Addis in Dar, but just visited on an impulse and I'll certainly be back again. The restaurant is on an outside terrace on the first floor with wonderful atmospheric lighting from many candles and the lights shaded by colourful umbrellas!
The tables are traditional Ethiopian woven tables with a tray in the middle in which the food is served on a large plate covered with injera (a large thin sourdough flatbread made of fermented teff flour). There was also a basket of rolls of injera, which at first I had thought were hot towels! These are used to eat the food with your fingers as the hot dishes are just poured onto the injera on the plate and you help yourself to what you want. I had red lentils, and 2 kinds of bure (beef) watt, one very spicy and the other milder and a lovely spicy prawn dish.
The staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful when it came to choosing the dishes and the service was good.
Altogether a different and memorable and I will definitely be visiting regularly now!
