This casual Greenwich Village spot on MacDougal Street makes reliable Ethiopian food like spongy-sour injera, red lentils, berbere-spiced doro wot, and minced collards. We like to order a combo platter here, which costs $16.95 and comes with five different meaty stews and vegetable sides. But if you’re eating with someone else, get a couple of crispy fried sambusas too.
