1. Spicy Chicken Stew (see photo at right)...$9.99
This is something of a "national dish" in Ethiopia, a spicy thick sauce with dark berbere spice and a touch of tomato.

2. Mild Chicken Stew...$9.99
Caramelized onions are the basis of this delicious sauce.

17. Breast Chicken Strips (Mild or Medium Spiced)...$11.50

Altu's Ethiopian Cuisine
Beef & Lamb
3. Spicy Sirloin Meat Stew...$10.75
A flavorful sauce spiced with berbere, richly spicy.

4. Mild Sirloin Meat Stew (see photo)... $10.75
Mild yet flavorful chunks of meat in savory sauce.

5. Spicy or Mild Sirloin Meat with Mixed Vegetables (see photo, top left item)...$11.00
Try this one on a bed of rice rather than bread if you are looking for something mild and familiar. Very satisfying.

6. Spicy or Mild Lamb Meat...$14.00
Our lamb is halal-processed, high quality meat with rich sauce, flavored your way.

7. Beef & Chicken Combo...$11.50
8. Beef or Chicken with any Vegetarian Dish...$11.50
19. Beef in Spicy Chickpea Sauce...$10.75

Vegetarian Specials
9. Spicy Lentils...$7.99
A favorite in Ethiopia, with a complex set of flavors... not just spice, real depth.

10. Mild Split Yellow Peas...$7.99
Another good choice for those wanting a familiar and mild dish. Satisfying and filling.

11. Whole White Peas & Potatoes...$7.99

12. Spicy Pinto Beans...$7.99
These are not like any other Pintos you have tried, richly layered with Altu's rich flavorings and traditional berbere spice.

13. Mild Lima Beans (see photo at right)...$8.25
This one you will not find in Ethiopia, it's Altu's special recipe. Mild and creamy, not grainy like the limas of your past. Regular customers come back for these, you must try them, too.

14. Spicy Ground Peas...$8.25
This smooth-textured specialty starts with chickpeas ground into flour, spiced and flavorful.

15. Vegetarian Combo (see photo at right)...$9.99
   (Any four vegetarian items)

16. Spicy Ground Peas Mixed with Greens...$8.99
Take #14 above and blend with Altu's collard greens for a delightful change of pace.

18. Mild Garlic Lentils (formerly Saturday Special)...$8.25
These were so popular that we added them to the everyday menu. Delicious!

20. NEW! Mild Chickpeas Sauce...$8.25
