Being vegan and dining quite often in Tel Aviv in places which serve vegan food I was surprised to discovered Tenat restaurant
This is quite a new place which offers vegan Ethiopian food
I visited TENAT and ordered Injera Plate, the bigger size, priced 42 Israeli shekel, which is about 12$.
Injera is Ethiopian bread, it looks like a thin pita bread but is very airy unlike the usual pita bread. It’s very similar to the Yemen lahoh bread which is served in some Tel Aviv restaurants. The Injera is made from teff flour which is gluten free.
The Injera Plate includes: Injera, lentils, root vegetables, Ethiopian style humus, cooked beet leaves and fresh seasoned salad.
The dish was served on a medium size tray covered with the Injera bread. Placed directly on the bread where all the ingredients are described. To my opinion the portions were quite small. Not like the normal portion that I am used to get in Tel Aviv restaurants. I would like to emphasize that I ordered the bigger size. Except for the rather small size portions, everything tasted excellent. As I mentioned before the price is 42 Israeli shekel. That’s before the tip.
I talked with the owner of the restaurant, he apologized and explained that this is due to the fact that helping girl in the kitchen is new and he will correct the portion size issue.
I still recommend this place if you what to taste Ethiopian vegan food. The taste was excellent. As for the size of portions I will try to check in the near future and let you know.
They serve Ethiopian beer, juices, shakes, coffee and tea. My tea was very tasty with good aroma, due to the additional ingredients. The overall cost for the dish and the tea including the tip was about 16$.
Open Sun-Thur 10:30-23:30, Fri 10:00-16:00, closed Sat.

We happened to hear about Tenat from a friend, and decided to try it out. It was our first time trying Ethiopian food, and we became addicted! The meals are simple, nutritious, just the right size and most importantly - tasty!! The owner is very nice, very friendly and he's an interesting person to talk to. The idea behind the place is that food is more than a personal thing, to just eat your own personal meal, but eating is a social activity, use your hands, touch your food, share and eat off the same plate - there's much more to eating than just eating. The place is small & cozy, there was a wonderful breeze outside on the small porch. Everything they serve is vegan and their prices are cheap!!

A very nice place, good and personal service, and beautiful food.
I recommend whole-heartedly.
We had the Ingira-byntr (or something like that) which a big plate covered with a big Ingira covered with 4 different kinds of vegetable dishes.
