Seattle Weekly's Description

Pan Africa ventures far beyond Ethiopian cuisine; this ambitious little eatery also serves up seafood stews from Madagascar and chicken dishes from Senegal. The chicken yassa is prepared with lemon, onions, green olives, and saffron-a striking blend of Mediterranean flavors indicative of the two regions' deep interconnectedness. Though the service is quick, at noontime the crowd swells considerably, so don't count on having a quick lunch here.

    Ethiopian-born owner Mulugeta Abate wants to enlighten Northwest palates to include Senegalese chicken yassa, South African seafood bobotie, piri-piri chicken from the Portuguese colonies, and more.

    Regardless of whether you're veggie or not, try the foul. Because it tastes good.

  • Ann J. on 03/14/12

    Great food, but incredibly slow service. You'll need to be very patient.

  • Jay S. on 06/12/11
