Is it safe place to reside, as there is a war condition right now. How much would it cost monthly for food and residence ?
Are residence complexes clean there ? What kind of vegetarian food i can get there ?

Sorry for the lateness of my reply. Asmara is one of the safest capital cities in Africa in terms of violent crime, so don't worry about that. The tension between Ethiopia and Eritrea is hotting up again; it's anyone's guess if they start fighting again. Eritreans are big meat-eaters but because many of them are orthodox, they have regular 'fasting' days where they eat only vegetarian food: Wednesdays and Fridays. You will be able to find vegetarian food but it isn't always available on non-fasting days.

Asmara is a beautiful city full of friendly people. You'll have a great time.

Hope this helps.
