I always get the veggie platter, and for $9 it's a steal. Two kinds of lentils, beets, and whatever the veggies are that day (usually green beans with carrots, cabbage, and some sort of greens). The box weighs quite a bit and I can never finish it. My one complaint would be that the mesir wot isn't spicy enough, so ask them for more berbere if you're used to Ethiopian food.

Super-tasty generously-portioned Ethiopian food with very friendly people staffing the truck. The veggie platter (which I believe is also vegan) came with 6 different foods: split lentils, whole lentils, shiro peas, cabbage, green beans & carrots, and chard, all served on a folded injera with another injera on top. Incredibly filling, but I usually can't stop myself from eating the whole thing anyway. The chard and cabbage are kind of greasy (but that's not necessarily a bad thing, since they're yummy), and each of the legume dishes are flavorful on their own but also great if you combine a bite of this with a bite of that. My two favorites are the misir wot (split lentils in berbere sauce) and the green beans with carrots, so if you don't have the extra dollar for the platter, I would get those. But the platter is the way to go if you want a nice sampling of all the vegetarian dishes. Only disadvantage is the afternoon food coma that follows.


If you love real Ethiopian food, this is the place to go. And they are soooooo nice!

I always liked Ethiopian food, but I fell in love with theirs. The food was delicious, the waking time was pretty reasonable and their service is great. The girl taking my order was extremely professional, polite and helpful.

I got Tibs today and it consisted of a beef stew in tomato (?) sauce, with injera bread and two vegetables. I have to say it was really delicious and I regret not getting some extra for dinner.

I can't wait to try something new next time they are around 21st and L.

Tasty Ethiopian food. The veggie platter included six different items -- three legumes (brown lentils, red lentils, and yellow split peas) and three vegetarian sides, which look like they rotate each day. Today they were chard, cabbage, and green beans with carrots.

Service was super quick for a food truck, and the person taking the order was very helpful in explaining what the veggie platter included. They let my co-worker customize it since she only wanted three of the six items.
