My favorite Denver Ethiopian Restaurant, and right around the corner from my house. If you've never eatin Ethiopian, it's pretty good. Thick stews that you eat with the bread.. The best bit is the end, when all the flavors soak into the Injera. They have vegan and meat-based options: I generally just get the Veggie Combo or Meat Combo, as it provides a lovely sampling of several Ethiopian staples.
