Eat This: Ethiopian Restaurant Lunch Buffet (Closed)

Posted by Holly Whitfield | September 3rd 2013 4616 0

Ethiopian Restaurant is a straightforward kind of place, so much so that It’s name is, as far as I can tell, just Ethiopian Restaurant. It’s like they took all of the effort they could have put into branding and decorating and naming the restaurant something catchy into and put it into the food instead. Which, when you think about it, is probably how it should be.

I stopped by for lunch today, which meant that I got to try the $9 all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. It was basic, but impressive: beef stew, spicy chicken stew, red and dark lentils, collard greens, green beans, rice, injera, potatoes and cabbage. I got some chicken, but barely touched it because I was so busy stuffing my face with the vegetables.

Despite it being noon on a workday, we were the only people there, which seems a little crazy given how delicious and cheap the food is.

Ethiopian Restaurant is open Tuesday through Sundays for lunch and dinner. It’s kid-friendly, vegan and vegetarian friendly, and they accept credit cards. If you’re having trouble finding it, it’s in the shopping center next to the Malco Theatre at Germantown Rd. and Macon.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    This restaurant is one of the very best in the Cordova and surrounding areas. Not only is the food incredible but the owner is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. In my line of work and travels I seek out the very best restaurants that are affordable. Ask our children where they want to eat and the first place they mention is Ethiopian! A wonderful way to enjoy a great healthy meal community style! Forgo the utensils and enjoy the custom of their culture. Tear a piece of injera bread off and scoop your yummilicious goodness with it and pop into your mouth. Prepare yourself for the most fantabulous explosion of flavor and textures! Trust me… you will find yourself craving this amazing restaurant often!
