Craving Ethiopian Fare at The Parker? Head to Caffé Utopia & Bar!
Do you love Ethiopian food? Then you’re going to love Caffé Utopia & Bar, the newest Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine in Alexandria. The focus for this tasty spot is placed on healthy cuisine, so you’re getting all those rich and complex African flavors without the guilt of a cheat meal. Sounds pretty delightful, right? It is!
The menu features a little bit of something for everyone, omnivores and carnivores alike. To start, order the hummus which is freshly housemade, and a few of the sambusas which are flaky pastry dough filled with lentils, onion, and jalapeno. For your entree, if you’re vegetarian, try the vegetarian combo which features all the veggie favorites from the menu. You’ll get tastes of red split lentils, stewed chickpeas, potato alicha, and more, all served aside rice or Injera bread – an Ethiopian delicacy. If meat is more your style, try the Fir-Fir dish, which is lamb and beef mixed with sauce, a special Ethiopian herbal butter, and onion, garlic, and tomato served with Injera. A traditional specialty!
No matter what you order, you’ll be back for more after the first bite.
