Serving both Ethiopian and Dominican food under one roof isn't a trend we imagine taking the Shore by storm anytime soon. Rather, it’s the story of one unique restaurant whose chef/owner is from Ethiopia but took it upon herself to learn to cook exceptional Dominican food to appeal to locals at their former location in Long Branch. Then when Ada’s Gojjo opened in Asbury Park, she brought the two styles of cooking together and the result is a unique menu blending Dominican classics like tostones, mofongo, pastelón, and yucca cakes with Ethiopian standouts featuring beef, chicken, and lamb stews served with lentils and veggies on housemade injera. Throw in their takes on the classic Cubano and cheesesteak served with fries or maduros, and Ada’s literally has something for everyone.
