Good Ethiopian in SD?
I was in Santa Rosa a week or so ago and had a fabulous dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant there. It made me pine for the days when I lived 15 minutes from the Ethiopian enclave on South Fairfax in LA. Are there any good Ethiopian restaurants in SD? I ate at one some years ago on, I believe, El Cajon Blvd., but it was just okay, and not worth making a special trip to from North County. I'm a veg, so I'd be especially interested in a place with good veg dishes. Gotta get my injera fix!
Sadly, I have not found an Ethiopian place as good as those I've eaten at elsewhere. Right now, I think Asmara at 4155 University may be the best - even though it calls itself Eritrean, not Ethiopian. It is certainly the prettiest and most appealing of the Ethiopian places I've eaten at in SD. They have veggie combos. Also, the Shiro, a puree of stewed roasted chickpeas is very good there. I wrote up my one visit for Kirk's blog mmm-yoso:
If you find other good places, let us know.

I agree the Ethiopian restaurants here are not as good as ones I've been at in other cities but both Awash and Red Sea are decent abet very much home style places run as family businesses. On the upside the food is good and the prices are very affordable plus much of their clientele are from the horn of Africa region so you know the food is authentic.
