Below average Eritrean food

There are better places in Heidelberg for Eritrean food. There are many options for vegans but unfortunately the food is below average. I got a dish labeled spicy and it tasted pretty flavorless. Its not that it was too mild for me, it tasted like they just forgot to add spices in.

The injera here was very sour and the texture was off. I usually love Eritrean and Ethiopian food but the food here missed the mark.

Lecker Essen in Heidelberg ❤️

Tolles gastfreundliches Restaurant das es zu besuchen gilt. Hier gibt es authentisches afrikanisches essen für den schmalen Geldbeutel und für die die etwas besonderes mögen. Mir hat das traditionell zubereitete Brot und die verschiedenen Gemüse sehr gut geschmeckt. Empfehlen möchte ich auch den äthiopischen Kaffee. Alles in allem super lecker!

Pros: Gemüse, Ambiente, Freundlichkeit

small ethnic restaurant with a few vegan options

very small restaurant with just 4 tables but there were almost no people at that time. there are 3 vegan meals plus 1 mix of those 3 if you want to try all of them , which we recommend cause only one would be boring. not very strong flavor and spices so I was a little bit disappointed , potatoes in one of the meal were too hard ( uncooked ).

Pros: friendly staff , filling food, big enough portions

Cons: be aware it's very small space, not very strong flavors

Delicious & filling

We had a very delicious veggie plate for two (just ordered it “vegan”) for lunch and it was absolutely delicious and we were satisfied till late.
They offer also two vegetarian savory breakfast meals and one vegan one. Plus soy milk for coffee.

good vegan selection

They have a vegan/vegetarian section on the menu with 4 dishes (7-8 euros) and a tasting plate (10 euros) with 3 of the 4 dishes which you can choose. All dishes in this section are vegan and are served with injera (fatbread made from teff flour). For coffee soymilk is available.
We tried the vegan tasting plate and it was a really filling and delicous combination! Friendly stuff!

Pros: variety of vegan dishes, soymilk for coffee

First time with Eritrean food! awesome!

This place was right around the corner from our hostel and it was so worth the visit. Veggie dishes were only €6.50 which is a good price for a filling meal. I got the "mixed plate" and it was perfect! It came with 3 different dips and two pieces of Eritrean flat bread.

Pros: yummy spices, inexpensive

Delicious, authentic, friendly

When I was there, they had 3 vegan and one meat dish. So the vegan plate contained all 3 dishes with the typical pancake-like bread and all that for just €5! It was super delicious and filling. The dishes weren't spicy at all but you could add that as you like.

Pros: Authentic , Delicious , Inexpensive
