About Adulis

A laidback yet elegant haven from the incessant traffic of Brixton Road, Adulis offers traditional Eritrean food. Instruments, artefacts, and images of heroes and heroines from the horn of Africa combine to create an unique environment in which to explore a modest range of aromatic meaty dishes such as kulwa, which is lamb fried in ghee, onion and green chilli. Everything comes with enjera (freshly baked leavened bread) or rice. From a generous list of vegetarian options, how about the misnamed foul - a tasty mix of broad beans, onions and olives, served with cottage cheese, tomatoes and butter?
