Went to Jubba over the weekend, next to the Ohlone/Chenowyth VTA Light Rail Station. I'd never had Somali food, and it was interesting. It was a lot less like Ethiopean than I expected, with many influences that seemed Indian (chappatti) and Persian (the spiced rice with raisins).
Highlights were a very tender goat dish (#1), the beef stew (I forget the number and name), the beef sambusas (more like an indian samosa), the rice, and the chappati. The injera was very different from Ethiopian -- puffy, sweet, less fermented, and darker in color. I liked the chappati better, though my sweet-tooth wife loved it. I would pass on the "beef steak" next time.
The staff were very nice, and six adults gorged for $46 pre-tip.
