My first experience with Ethiopian food. We ordered yebeg alecha (lamb), chlen tils (chicken), gomen beseaga (meat) and spicy vegetables. The food is amazing and the owner is very friendly what gives the place a very familiar atmosphere.

There are many restaurants serving excellent meals, but this is only one I've been to where warm hugs are freely added to the menu. Call it intentional salesmanship if you like. I call it uniquely authentic and divine.

If it's Uchenna for which you're looking, then look no further. This is my all-time favorite restaurant. There is really something special about Chef Maya.
