    Really good Ethiopian in Seattle! Lamb wot and lamb tibs are really good. If you're 3-4 people go with one of these and vegetarian combo.

    Foul is available past noon on weekends. And Lindy West says it's probably the best in the city. She's right. Get it with injera and coffee.

    First timer? Get the meat and veggie samplers (2 people), wash your hands then get dirty! Who doesn't love eating with their hands!?!

    Make sure to get here before noon to make sure you can order from the excellent breakfast menu.

    Veggie plate was very good. Meat one not so much. Fantastic spinach.

    If you like heat, ask for their homemade jalapeño spread--it provides a mild kick

    The best foul I've ever had, bar none. One of my favorite Seattle restaurants.

    The foul (say "fool") for breakfast. Coffee roasted in-house.
