The dark interior of this Edgewater eatery is decorated with pictures, tables and chairs imported from Ethiopia. Neighborhood residents, Ethiopian ex-pats and Loyola students stop by for beef sambusa -- pastry stuffed with meat, onion and jalapeno pepper -- and kitfo, made with raw or rare seasoned ground beef. The restaurant's authentic cuisine also includes sides such as cabbage and roasted lentils; vegetarians can sample several of the sides in one of the combo platters. To wash down your meat-infused stews and other items, the eatery offers soda and a full bar.
