Atlanta is fortunate to have a number of Ethiopian restaurants, but many people think this one is the best. The vegan options (they've assured me they don't use butter) are a number of different vegetable (like potatoes, carrots, greens) and legume stews, served with injera bread (which is gluten-free). The stews are $7 to $9, but what's best is a vegetarian sampler ($12) that has all the different stews to try. The spicing is subtle, but the food is flavorful and wholesome.
Be aware: Ethiopian food is eaten with the fingers---no utensils! They will be serving us individual pieces of injera so we don't have to share a communal one, but you will be using your fingers.
They are only reserving 20 spots for us, so please only RSVP if you are definitely coming and change your RSVP if your plans change.
