If you haven’t had Ethiopian food or if you haven’t tried out Axum Café in Lower Haight, you are missing out on incredible food at more than reasonable prices. Spicy meals and mild options simmered with a special blend of Ethiopian spices are all served on bread that is similar to a pancake alongside a salad with a special Ethiopian dressing.
The décor is sparse but the portions are large and the prices can’t be beat; Axum Café has a slew of vegetarian dishes for only $7 each and carnivorous folks can enjoy dinners priced between $10 and $14. Larger parties can enjoy platters sampling all five traditional Ethiopian vegetarian dishes for as little as $17.
The restaurant is located at 698 Haight Street near Pierce. Call Axum Café at 415-252-7912 for more details.
