I traveled in east Africa along the truck stop from Nairobi to Adis in Ethiopia. Ate in little hole in the walls with great food, coffee and tea. African International Restaurant on Salina is one of them, transported it seems across the great ocean. The place looks like a joint, with literal holes in the wall. When we were there, clusters of Somali men were noisily playing dominoes and we had to put our seats around an old formica table. But when the tea came out, laced with milk cardamom, I was back in Africa again. The four of us had a large plate of Ethiopian vegetarian and meat stews on teff spongy crepe with additional crepes to grab the stews with your fingers and eat it. Forks too, for the squeamish. This alone could have fed us four (less than 20 dollars), but we also ordered a goat stew which was excellent too. I'll be going back. What a cool place and across the street and near it are two African markets just like in Africa too.
