Eritrean and Ethiopian Cafe, featuring cuisine from those countries on the Horn of Africa, has opened in south Tulsa at 6934 S. Lewis Ave.
“The food is very much the same in both countries,” said owner Yonas Abraham, a native of Eritrea.
Among the entrees are key wot, a beef stew in berberé sauce; tibs, marinated rib-eye steak cooked with peppers, onion, tomato, garlic and rosemary; and lamb alcha, curried lamb stew cooked with spices and black peppers. Barbere is a spicy sauce made with up to 15 herbs and spices.
Most dishes come with injera, a spongy flatbread that can be used as a scoop to pick up food and sauces from a plate.
The restaurant also offers breakfast items, pastries, appetizers, chicken dishes and vegetarian dishes.
Prices generally range from $8 to $21, though most entrees are about $12.
Eritrean and Ethiopian Cafe is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. The phone number is 918-477-9227.
