Ethiopian pop-up restaurant in Honolulu

Ethiopian pop-up restaurant in Honolulu

Addis Ababa Hawaii returns. The Ethiopian food pop-up that started last year in J2 Fusion (now Cacao Bistro) is back, now at Lemongrass Cafe in Chinatown.

Expect dishes like beef wot, a spicy saffron-stewed beef, and lamb tibs, grilled lamb with rosemary. A hearty vegan option includes lentils, beets, and collards. All the dishes are served atop injera, a slightly sour, spongy crepe.

Lunch and dinner start March 10 and continue for at least two more Saturdays. Lunch will be available from noon, dinner is at 6 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. by reservation only.

83 N. King St., for dinner reservations, email
