The Scoop: Ethio Express is a phenomenal example of how to take the best parts of something good and make something great. Owner Yisak Fiseha explains that the traditional model of Ethiopian restaurant is overpriced, takes too much time and isn’t that healthy. His vision was to take the ever popular fast casual concept and apply it to his family’s cuisine. The results speak for themselves as people line up each day for lunch and dinner to take advantage of classic Ethiopian flavors in the quick serve fashion. We enjoyed a plate of chicken tibs, spicy lentils and collard greens which were all as good (if not better) than any Ethiopian we’ve enjoyed to date. We appreciate that Ethio Express makes a point to use as little oil as possible in cooking which makes the food less greasy and healthier than many other spots. Ethio Express is also an excellent place to try Ethiopian for the first time because the choices are less overwhelming than the extensive menu of a traditional Ethiopian eatery and because they make a point to minimize the variation between batches each day. If you are looking for a new flavor, a fast meal or a new take on a classic cuisine then your search is over.
