Addis London Reviews
Addis Feb 07, 2011
Addis is an Ethiopian restaurant on Caledonian Road, near Kings Cross station.
I had never tried Ethiopian food before. It turns out that it’s really good. Most of the items on the menu were spiced stews, which are nicely warm but you can still taste all the ingredients. They’re served on a large circle of injera, which is a bit like a cross between a crepe and sourdough bread. You tear off the bread and eat the stew with it, without cutlery, and if there are lots of people eating then the stew all goes onto the injera and you share. It tastes great, and it’s very filling.
This restaurant is great value. A portion of lamb stew and injera, and a really nice Ethiopian beer, came to a total of £11 and I was completely full.
It is nicely decorated, with lots of photos of Ethiopia and interesting art, with the side effect that, for the first time ever, I am wondering if Ethiopia might be a good place to go travelling. After all, many of my travel choices are based on food! It’s also a great place to take vegetarians. Apparently, according to the menu, fast days are taken seriously in Ethiopia and this means that they’ve developed quite an extensive range of vegetarian foods.
I can’t wait to go back, hopefully with some friends so we can try more things from the menu.
