The quiet neighbourhood of Jinbocho is best known for its book town, a veritable heaven for anyone interested in old tomes and a unique atmosphere virtually untouched by time. The number two attraction here, however, is curry, with small eateries lining the streets wherever you look. Ethiopia is one of the area's most popular joints, drawing spice fiends with its flavourful but light sauce that's made with stewed vegetables and an original garam masala mix. The small, slightly run down caff gets its name from the Ethiopian coffee loved by one of the previous owners. Its current menu, however, is far less exotic, consisting mainly of curries served with a boiled potato and butter. You can adjust the spiciness on all dishes – very helpful for curry beginners.
