Sad news that the African restaurant on Oak St. has turned over again. But very good news that its now really tasty Eritrean food, (which is like Ethiopian - I don't personally know if there is a difference).

Prices are totally reasonable and the food is well spiced. The presentation is a little different than I'm used to -- for example the dishes came on injera but with a salad next to the stewed entree. It was fine, a well seasoned little salad, although I felt odd eating it with my hands (using the bread of course).

Also, they have some combos but I'd rather they let you create your own, one meat dish with one (or choice) or vegetable/lentil dish. Maybe some day.

I really hope people give this food a try, I don't know how more African restaurants can give it a go in Portland and this one is definitely tasty and supportable.
