Ethiopian fare is appealing to folks with a wide variety of dietary preferences. The kitchen here offers plenty of traditional meat-centered dishes, while also serving up a variety of hearty vegetarian dishes. If you're new to Ethiopian cuisine, just ask your server for a recommendation or plunge right in with one of the "sampler" meals that allow you to try smaller portions of four to six different dishes. Whatever you choose, you'll eat it with a side of injera, a traditional Ethiopian bread wtih a spongy, tart taste.
