Las Vegas has no shortage of Ethiopian restaurants that are vegan-friendly. But, somehow this one slipped under our radar for more than a year. Nu Ethiopian Kitchen, located off of S. Decatur, offers a vegan Ethiopian menu much to our delight.
We’re huge fans of Ethiopian food, so discovering another vegan-friendly Ethiopian restaurant in Las Vegas makes us giddy. Add to the fact that there’s an actual vegan section in their menu and they understand vegan dining, and we’re over the moon.
Start your meal off with a lentil-filled sambosa. Served two per order, these pastry-filled and lightly fried snacks are perfect to hold you over for the main course.
Our favorite thing to order at any Ethiopian restaurant is the veggie platter because it’s pretty difficult to choose. The platter makes it easy — at Nu Ethiopian they give you six different Ethiopian vegan specialties atop injera, with more injera to eat/use with the dish.
However, if you prefer to narrow it down, Nu Kitchen has many vegan options.
Go forth and experience another vegan-friendly Ethiopian restaurant in Las Vegas.
