Authentic Ethiopian flavors are delivered without pretense at this easygoing, affordable restaurant housed in a strip mall just off Bascom Avenue. Though the space is basic, the service is friendly and it’s casual enough for kids in tow. Start things off with an order of sambussas, fried dough triangles filled with lentil, onion and chilies. Then choose from an all-meat, all-veggie or mixed selection of warming stews, like tibs firfir, featuring lamb in a garlicky berbere sauce dolloped on spongy injera. Vegetarians will particularly love dining here, as all of the plant-based options, including alicha wot or split peas in turmeric sauce, shiro (spiced chickpeas) and gomen (wilted collard greens with onion and spices), are big winners.
