Great Food - Edit

Really good food. Service is very friendly but inattentive. Be sure to call ahead and have them prepare the maskal teff injera. It has a lot more flavor.

Pros: Food, Atmosphere

Cons: Service

A Tucson fave - Edit

Zemam's has two locations now, this one and one on Speedway, just west of 4th Ave. I asked and the veg options don't have butter. The veggie sampler is plenty. The "spicy" dishes actually have a little spice, more than some other Ethiopian places. This is where I first tried Ethiopian and it's still good over a decade later. They also have beer and wine now.

Pros: Many veggie options, Quick service, Reasonable cost

Great Ethiopian choices (check out 2nd location) - Edit

Zemam's is a little Ethiopian restaurant set inside of an old Arizona house in central Tucson. I've been there on dozens of occasions, and am rarely disappointed. The food listed under Vegetarian is all vegan except the spinach (which comes with a spoonful of cottage cheese)--they are happy to leave this off. You can order with low oil! You can also order gluten-free injera (spongy, sour flatbread), if you call a few hours in advance. Everything is fantastic here, and we always want more the next day (so order enough for leftovers).

The owners have opened a second location: Zemam's Too on Speedway near I-10. This location has a slightly different menu which my family likes even more than the original menu (probably only because we haven't had it as often). It, too, is inside of an old Arizona house.

Both places have ample seating and are easy to park at if you go at slightly off hours.

Pros: Excellent food and flavors, Friendly staff, Cute location w/ ample seating

Cons: Not 100% vegan
