Yegna is an Ethiopian Restaurant that specializes in African recipes. We enjoy exploring new tastes deep into the origins of the African culture, and most specifically around Ethiopian cookery because we believe that there’s so much untapped sweetness the closer to “natural” we get with foods.
What do you want most in food apart from taste which is everyone’s expectations as they walk into a restaurant? You want quality. You want value. Yegna restaurant features quality and high-value recipes that are carefully chosen for scrumptious meals that not only keep you healthy but also help in the excellent development of the body for young lads.
Our Ethiopian cuisines incorporate a variety of ingredients that may be somewhat foreign to you, so why don’t we have a quick look at what we’re serving you? You should expect meaty meals, spicy or otherwise, and vegies as well for your dishes. This cookery also features Lenten season meals, special-occasion meals and dairy products among others. Moreover, you’ll enjoy the Ethiopian coffee with its signature mark to every meal and traditional ingredients are the least we can offer for your special meal options.
Start your mornings with injera sushi and satisfy your vegie wants with both injera lasagna and our pasta with injera. Injera is an Ethiopian high-value flatbread that has a spongy texture and a deep sour taste. An eragrostis tef, or simply known as tef, is a lovegrass species of grass that grows annually and has edible seeds. Injera was traditionally made out of flour made from grinding these seeds.
Enjoy your every-day meal with our Ethiopian tibs. Our chicken and zilzil tibs are excellent for your lunch and dinner and our Yegna specials feature delicious Yegna tibs and derk tibs. Basically, sautéed meat and vegetables make tibs. We serve various tibs depending on your preference of the sauté, meat condition and amount of vegetables in the tib. They will, therefore, be available mild, hot or contain vegetables of varied amounts. Remedius Prutky, after visiting Ethiopia in the 18 th Century, described tibs as grilled meat served in portions to pay respects or compliments. Today, we serve tibs on special holidays and events; but you can still try them at any other time.
