The Ultimate Guide to International Cuisine in San Diego-San Diego Magazine

The quaint bungalow in University Heights focuses on Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisines, which means ditching the fork and eating with your hands. All entrées are served together, family-style, on one huge platter, and you eat by tearing off a small piece of injera (a thin, spongy bread rolled up in a scroll) and scooping up a bite. There’s a glossary on the menu to explain some ingredients.

Must-try dish: Timtimo, red lentils braised in spices
