eating at Gheralta

We ate all our meals at the lodge restaurant. Breakfast was my favorite meal (it generally is). Every morning hot rich Ethiopian coffee was served as well as homeade yeast dougnuts, biscuits, rolls, eggs with vegetables, and an assortment of honey and homemade jams. Lunch consisted of a vegetable appetizer, fresh pasta with tomato sauce, salad with all the ingredients grown in the gardens on the grounds and fuit. Dinner was soup, salad, vegetable lasagna, beef goulosh, and crepes. The second evening was an Ethiopian meal. My first ever Ethiopian food and it was delicious. Lentils, injera, beef, spicy vegetables, and honey wine. The food at Gheralta lodge was fresh and very good. For me, the simplistic atmosphere added to the dining experience. I also found the simple natural decor of the lodge very pleasing. It was clean, airy and authentic.
