Fresh, fresh, fresh with 3 levels of spiciness. The three of us devoured the tasty siga tibs, Doro wot and vegetable variety platter. A great find with metered parking nearby.

South of Market Streets keeps changing. The cityscape has been getting a facelift at a glacial pace, but my friends and I were able to dine at a humble cafe called Moya. We ordered a veggie platter with doro tibs, which is a sautéed chicken...More

Stopped by this spot while visiting our niece, who had never eaten Ethiopian food. We have, in several cities, and this was some of the best we've ever had. Our niece loved it, and will introduce her friends to it. The injera was good, and...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
