Zagol a quaint little Ethiopian resturant in Karama. Honestly if you blink you could miss this place. My friends and I were fortunate enough to stumble upon it as we were looking for a bite to eat.
We arrived and were greeted very warmly by Ethiopian ladies in their traditional attire. The place is quite small but not in a suffocating way its really cosy. Walls lined with ehtiopian artifacts and paintings it transports one into another time and place, having been to Addis I really felt I was there for a second :).
I suggested this place when we stumbled upon it as I have had ethiopian food plenty a times and found it always delectable. So i cajooled them into it and they happily obliged. We ordered the injera which is the staple flat rice flour base something similar to dosa this comes standard with all dishes. We ordered the veggie dish which comes in a vast array of veggies such as beetroot ,spinach, cabbage and potato salad and lentils and the traditional shiro soup which is made of chilli powder. In addition we ordered a side of tebs which is little cubes of beef sauted in garlic and onion with sauce. You can chose to have it with or without sauce. I prefer it with sauce because the injera can be dry without it.
The food was enough for all three of us and I cant even explain how much my friends enjoyed the food. I was super impressed with the food it was delicious. The food took a little while this is because they make the food from scratch so its really fresh. I loved this place if anything the ambiance was so homely and genuine not pretencious at all.
We had some bunna afterwards. This is the smooth delicious Ethiopian coffeee thats served in a traditional coffee pot. The coffee beans are ground right there so you are guaranteed literally a fresh cup of coffee.
What a perfect way to end a perfectly scrumptious meal. Super loved this place! The best part was the cost we paid AED71for everything. What a steal for such value for money! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
