Restaurants come and go in the fickle food court known as the Inner Sunset, but New Eritrea continues to be beloved decades after it opened. It’s always a warm and hassle-free experience to bring a group here with mixed eating restrictions. Every vegetarian dish on the menu (which includes both Eritrean and Ethiopian dishes) happens to also be vegan, and there are also plenty of meat options, including the New Eritrea special kitfo - a flank steak tartare mixed with collard greens and cheese. And when the bar has tej, an Ethiopian honey wine, it’s an especially good day.
