I first tried the Abessina in Göttingen which seems to be a spin-off from the restaurant named alike in Kassel, Germany. I loved the food (Injera; sourdough bread, and very spicy meat) and the special atmosphere. That is why I decided to visit the place in Northern Hesse, too. It is located close to the Stern in the more migrant-shaped part of the city center.
And yes, the food was good. But the style it wasn’t surprising anymore. Maybe I have tested better Ethiopian restaurants (like that one in Berlin) and corrected may scale. If you’re in Kassel it is worth a visit – but the hype around it isn’t understandable.
