Best Ethiopian Restaurant (2014)


Fasika is nestled inconspicuously close to the bustling intersection of University and Snelling in Midway, and it takes a keen eye to spot the yellow awning. For those in the know, it's a small restaurant that packs a lot of authentic Ethiopian cuisine, steaming with pungent spice and brilliant color. From beef to lentils, they cook up a range of dishes, all to be scooped up and eaten with that spongy, mildly yeasty injera. While parking isn't convenient, walking down Snelling and taking in the neighborhood beforehand is a part of the experience. Fasika is also a cornerstone of the area, bringing in locals from the universities and shops, who gather there over some family-style platters to catch up on daily activities and rejoice in the wonders of the world, found right here in Midway, St. Paul.
