The Ethiopian Restaurant on Colfax is a finger-licking overeater's dream. Relax in pink-walled comfort, sipping Ethiopian honey wine while waiting for your food. And you will wait. But kick back and relax, because this small, homey place is going to put on a feast. Specialties include berbere paste flavored stews, called Wots, which will get your blood pumping. These spicy dishes blend meats such as chicken, beef, or lamb with hot chilies and spices to create a mouth-tingling treat. Call for opening hours.
This is an excellent Ethiopian restaurant. Many of the dishes are consistently phenomenal -- I think the red lentils and the lamb dishes are the best that I have ever had (and I eat Ethiopian everywhere I travel).
However, if you want a vegitarian plate with greens, the greens must be ordered as a side, and the whole meal comes to around $13. The same meal can be had down the road at Africana for $7.50,
And, the injera is not a whole teff injera, but seems to have a certain amount of white flour -- that is okay, but I prefer the whole teff injera, as served at Abyssinia.
The environment is friendly, but I have never seen Ethiopians eating there. They all seem to be eating down the road at Africana.
Like in most Ethiopian restaurants, be prepared to wait a bit.
