For a spicier take on Ethiopian cuisine, head over to this small but tidy storefront. The least spicy thing on the menu is the Kito , an African version of Steak Tartare that has still got a fair amount of bite to it. There is an excellent selection of vegetarian dishes made of lentils, eggplant, and so forth that are hearty and satisfying, but have plenty of cold water handy or, better, some refreshing honey wine. The clientele is the usual mix of Mission District types, some students, some professionals and some hippies left over from the Summer of Love. The low-key staff keeps them all happy with great service and plenty of smiles.
