This restaurant puts a spotlight on hot and spicy Somali food. Although Jubba’s flavorful goat, beef, and chicken dishes share some of the flavors found in greater Africa and India, they are something entirely unique. It’s worth a visit even though the dining room is often hectic and waits can be longer than when ordering food to go. Free hot tea laced with ginger and cardamom makes the slow service a little easier. Try going for lunch on a weekday to beat the rush on the weekends and at dinner.
