Two doors open to the Megenagna Ethiopian Restaurant and Grocery; pick either one. If you go in through the market, you can peruse fresh baked goods and packaged Ethiopian specialties before heading for the dining room. The other door leads directly to the restaurant, which features palm-leaf awnings that straddle the tables, supported by bamboo posts. Heavy, rough-hewn chairs and a bamboo coffee bar added to the village ambiance of the charming little space. Although there's no menu, friendly staff are happy to talk to you about the different types of kitfo and tibs offered. Orders come with generous amounts of injera bread and vegetable stews made from lentils, chick peas, and rich spices. If you need more description, check the restaurant's online menu before heading over.
