Where to begin? The Lunch Box might just be the best ethopian food I've ever had. They serve up all the usuals like cabbage and potatoes and lentil stew. If you are new to this type of food you should go conservative and go with veggies. Some of the food can be too spicy for beginners.

The Lunch Box is by far and away the best Ethiopian food around. I lived in the Ethiopian neighborhood in Oakland for 10 years and have eaten my share.

It's nothing fancy, very humble and homey. The proprietor treats you like an old friend, and it's staffed by family. The mom makes the very best greens I've eaten...ever.
I don't eat meat, but DH does, and we share the veggie platter with no sense of deprivation. Where else can two people eat a solid healthy meal for $10???

They have all the usual ethiopian goodies...lentil stew, cabbage and potatoes, plus the meat dishes. A word to the wise-if you aren't used to eating this style, stick to the veggie stuff. Some friends have found the spicy meat cooked in butter a bit toooo rich after the fact.

Don't miss the Lunch Box-it's a real treasure!

This is a great place to try if you're in the area. The dishes are great and seating is abundant. It's a great place for the price. Try the foulle and the veggie combo.
