Description

Among the most underrated of the world’s cuisines, Ethiopian food hypnotizes with its complex spicing, deeply flavored stews, and spongy, sour injera (bread). Ras Dashen is a welcoming spot to try it out, and it offers a worthy array of greatest hits, as well as a few less familiar items. Order the qosta (spinach), mesir wat (red lentils), yeqay tikil gomen (sweet-and-sour cabbage), yebeg de berbere (lamb in spicy tomato sauce), and doro wat (a classic chicken dish), and prepare to start wondering why there aren’t more Ethiopian places in town.
