A spicy cuisine built around lentils, beans, and a flavorful array of spice combinations, Ethiopian food is a perfect foil for Minnesota winters. And there's no better place to sweat away the winter chill than Fasika. Located just off the Green Line at the University/Snelling intersection at the center of the metro, Fasika is tidy and basic, befitting a casual neighborhood establishment. Of course, the real test of any Ethiopian joint is its injera, a spongy bread that doubles as a utensil. Fasika nails it, with a distinctly yeasty dough that never overrides the main dish.
