It can be hard to get a table in this small, friendly eatery with a loyal following. The sampler plate of any three items allows you to try dishes like yesimir wat (a spicy lentil dish) and lega tibs (a milder beef dish with a tomato sauce). Most of the food has a stewlike consistency, so don't come if you feel the need to crunch. Everything is served on a communal platter with injera, a spongy bread, and eaten with the hands. Alcohol is bring your own.
