Desta Ethiopian Kitchen
Desta Ethiopian Kitchen has been serving Atlanta an authentic Ethiopian experience since 2006. Translating to “happy” Ethiopian Kitchen, Desta blends Southern comfort with a traditional Ethiopian restaurant. Set in a country-style home complete with indoor and outdoor porches, the eatery expertly sets a relaxed vibe, and offers delightful entrees at very reasonable prices. Its lentil sambusa, gomen, ribeye tibs, and addictively tangy injera literally have Atlanta eating out of their hands, with their hands. Yes, you can also eat with utensils, but where would the fun in that be? Desta has something for everyone, from the meatless, to breakfast for dinner types, to anyone just craving a slice of their beloved baklava and a mug of Ethiopian coffee. When dining with guests, do partake in “gursha,” or feeding someone with your hands—it’s an act of love.
