Kaffa Crossing in University City is small, but it doesn’t stop people from gathering to watch the African Cup or having a beer with their spicy shiro wot during a quick lunch. Our favorite here is the vegetarian combination, packed with stewed yellow split peas, spiced split lentils, tender and finely chopped collard greens, string beans, and carrots. And since they offer breakfast, you can start your day here with crushed fava beans and jalapeno-spiced eggs and end it with a drink and buttery chicken that you’ll want to eat like popcorn.
