The ethnic eatery, Kibrom’s Ethiopian & Eritrean Restaurant, is at a new location after Boise International Market fire
Kibrom’s Ethiopian & Eritrean Restaurant was one of the many vendors displaced after a fast-moving fire destroyed the Boise International Market last September.
After months of hard work, owners Kibrom Milash and Tirhas Hailu, who hail from East Africa, recently opened a full-service restaurant in a different location — this time in a space that’s all their own. The new Kibrom’s, at 3506 W. State St. across from the Dutch Goose, is housed in a spot that’s been a revolving door of ethnic eateries over the years.
Expect to find the same menu of Ethiopian and Eritrean specialties that the friendly couple dished up at Boise International Market. And this means spicy stews and aromatic vegetarian dips displayed like dabs of paint on hubcap-sized rounds of teff flour flatbread (injera). No forks necessary.
Vegetarians and vegans are definitely in luck here, and carnivores can score meaty treats such as zigni (curry-like beef stew) and deep-fried samosa triangles filled with beef, jalapeno, garlic and onion.
Kibrom Milash says he’s added a few items to the menu, and the restaurant will soon be offering a lunch buffet from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day it’s open.
Kibrom’s is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday; 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
