Dallas, Texas -Unknown to most Dallas residents, the city hosts one of the largest selections of Ethiopian restaurants in the country. The highest concentration is loosely located in the North Dallas/Richardson area near 365 and Greenville. Eastern Africans are known for their hospitality and the way they treat strangers like friends, and these restaurants aim to provide that quality with their traditional ethnic food. Grab some injera and dig in to these local favorites.

Desta Ethiopian Restaurant

Desta, which means “happiness,” offers this feeling with its own contemporary twist on Ethiopian food. This does mean that Desta makes a few dishes with American flair and serves them American style (on plates instead of the standard injera bread), but also offer more traditional selections. Like many local Ethiopian restaurants, the unassuming strip mall location disguises the quality of the cuisine inside.
