This homey, three-table eatery is a hidden gem, located a short jaunt from Berkeley’s main drag. The food is all vegan, and there’s only one choice to make: small, medium or large. The platter comes with a healthy serving of red lentils, yellow split peas, gomen, mixed vegetables and injera. The latter is packs a subtle nutty flavor from the teff and is served hot. Munch on a sambusa or two while you wait, savory fried pastries stuffed with green lentils or potato, onion, garlic and spices. The peppery, chilli-tinged dipping sauce is addictive.
