I have been trying to get to this restaurant for a few months and boy am I glad I finally made it. This has got to be my all-time favorite Ethiopian restaurant. The food was not only extremely flavorful and well-priced, but they had more vegetarian selections than I've ever seen in any other Ethiopian restaurant.
My mother and I shared the large combo platter for $15.95. It was enough food for two people, but I'm greedy so I wouldn't be opposed to getting the combo for 2 for $26.25. This platter had about 9 different items on it and all of them were good. The yemisir wot (lentils) and gomen (collards) were especially good but I was astoundingly impressed with the shimbra asa, which is a specialty that is not always featured. It's a spicy chickpea dough cooked to look like a thick fish stew. It was part of the combo platter but is also offered as its own main dish.
We also shared an order of sambusa (lentil and onion-filled fried roll). My mom really enjoyed it but I thought it could benefit from a sauce and would have preferred the filling to be a smooth paste, versus whole lentils.
We also had the Ethiopian tea, which was a delicious homemade tea, and not a Lipton teabag, as I've seen in other Ethiopian restaurants.
