In City of GoldGenet Agonafer credits LA Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold for saving her restaurant's post-9/11 slump. But the Goldster isn't the only thing keeping this Little Ethiopia restaurant afloat—it's Agonafer's outstanding cooking that make repeat customers out of first-timers. At the inviting restaurant on Fairfax, a plate of Doro Wot inspires diners to furiously scoop up spicy chicken in stewed red peppers, or tofu tibs sauteed in onions and green chiles. For those with a gluten allergy, gluten-free injera is availabel for $4 a piece. Order an Ethiopian beer or honey wine to wash it all down

Great spot to come with a group. Came here with a large party and had both a lovely time and a lovely meal. I've only tried a few Ethiopian places, but this certainly was as good as any other spot I've been to. We had a little bit of everything as well as some Ethiopian beers. If I had one criticism, it would be that it took quite a while to get our food and our check. Outside of that, we left very full and happy.
