Jarra's Ethiopian Restaurant Restaurant Review: Popular with budget-minded patrons and college students seeking an exotic, affordable dining adventure, Jarra’s able chefs produce deeply satisfying wats, or stews, brimming with spices and made with a variety of tender meats. Vegetarians can enjoy lentil dishes in mild or hot sauces. There are combination plates as well, and every dish comes with eyeb (cottage cheese) to refresh and remind your tongue of the meaning of "cool." Beer and mead are the only alcoholic options, and the best kind to accompany this type of food. Service at this family-run spot is notoriously slow --- though friendly --- so arrive with patience and know the food is worth the wait. The downstairs Langano Lounge offers the same menu in a low-brow cocktail bar, featuring live music and DJ's.
