Small Ethiopian cafe in Camberwell, secretlondon thinks on the site of an old greasy spoon. It is in a row of shops set back from Camberwell Road, and connected to the estate that contains the Castlemead tower block. It is in between Camberwell and Walworth, but south of Burgess Park, near what used to be National bathrooms and is now another African church.
secretlondon popped in one Saturday evening in March 2010. Ethiopian and Eritrean food are really very similar, but Eritrean food seems to be more common, so it's nice to see Ethiopian food locally. Their menu, which is available on their website, is two pages with no starters or desserts. They are licensed — I had a bottle of water, but they also do Ethiopian tea (which I should have had) and wine, beer etc. I had one dish, awaze tibs (£7), which was spiced lamb on an injeera. I was asked how hot I wanted it. I was still hungry after one dish and next time I may have more.
They do a mixed vegetarian meal (on an injeera) with a selection of dishes for £7.25. They also do a combination meal for two at £16 (prices as of March 2010).
secretlondon's verdict: The food was nice and I'll certainly come back. This feels like an unknown treasure, but I like Ethiopian and Eritrean food.
