The NU crowd supporting this stalwart knows the scoop: Use spongy injera bread to sop up everything on the stellar combo plates. Best selections include yeater kit wat (yellow split peas with garlic, cloves and cinnamon), yesiga wat (a spicy beef stew) and azifa (cold lentils with tomatoes and jalapeño). Food is served on a mesob—a single, large platter symbolizing intimacy and loyalty.
