Dahlak Paradise bills itself as a renowned Eri- Ethiopian Restaurant & Bar Feeding The Community By Hand For Over 25 Years.
A smaller homey place that will make you feel at home quickly…and that’s the point! Ethiopian cuisine is best with family and friends. The meal is served on a community plate and eaten with your hands – shared with your group.
Injera is an East African sourdough-risen flatbread with a unique, slightly spongy texture. Traditionally made out of teff flour, it is a national dish in Ethiopia and Eritrea.
Along with the Injera (flat bread) served with the meal the food is always interesting and tasty. I had the Dahlak Tibs for $12.00 that included top sirloin beef stir-fry seasoned and sauteed with peppers, onion, and tomatoes and paired this with the Yeungudia Wat for $10.00 listed as a stew of mushrooms lightly spiced and cooked in a zesty tomato-based stew.
These two meals were filling and enough to share with my companions and be more than enough to fill me up.
You can’t go wrong giving Dahlak a go and should have no fear exploring the menu to find a new favorite meal or enjoy an evening of entertainment during one of their live musical acts. BONUS – check out the bar with outdoor seating.
