Abol offers a variety of items on its menu including vegetarian options and gluten free injera. Mealtime in Ethiopia is a time in which families, friends, colleagues, couples, and even acquaintances come together to share a meal from one plate. This is where “Gursha” comes from. "Gursha" is an Ethiopian tradition in which the people eating show their kindness and affection by feeding one another.

            And what is Ethiopian dinning without coffee? As the Ethiopian tradition dictates, coffee is a social drink to be had in a casual environment while sitting and relaxing, taking time away from daily routines and busy schedules. This is why Ethiopian coffee is not encouraged to be served “to go”. So ask for an Ethiopian coffee, an espresso, a macchiato, or a cappuccino. Relax and enjoy your cup.
            When it comes to drinks, we make sure our customers get to experience the best Ethiopian wines and beers. Make sure you ask for St. George, Meta, or Harrar Beer, the three most famous Ethiopian beers that we have in stock. If you prefer wine, ask for Tej (Ethiopian Honey Wine) Axumit, Guder.
All menu items are prepared in our professional kitchen led and supervised by Chef T. Mamo. Currently, Abol has 3 full-time cooks who are native Ethiopians and have extensive experience in preparing Ethiopian cuisine. The chef and her cooks take pride in their cooking and are very determined in assuring that each and every meal leaving the kitchen is prepared well.
