Abyssnia is an ideal neighborhood spot to bring a friend or a date if you don’t mind sharing some excellent spicy beef stew off of the same plate. The food here is Ethiopian, extremely good, and all of the vegetable dishes are vegan. Get the meat or vegetable combo, and between the different stews, injera bread and vegetable sides, you’ll have a ton of food for around $15-20 per person. Also - there’s a list of wine and Ethiopian beer, but it’s pretty limited.
