Best Ethiopian and Eritrean
Time was, Fasika and the late, great Blue Nile had a stranglehold on the East African genre in the Twin Cites. These days, there are a lot more options for injera, tibs, and wot addicts. We like Ghebre’s for its family-owned vibe, with Genet Ghebre applying the same exacting cooking skills learned running restaurants in Africa. It’s nothing fancy, but you’ll get the feeling that you’re dining in someone’s home, which, essentially, you are. They’re also serving East African breakfasts like Kitcha (think pancake), fit-fit (shredded flat bread with spiced clarified butter and hot sauce), and ful (heavily spiced fava beans). Ghebre’s is also a haven for vegetarians and vegans — the kitchen will happily cook without the clarified butter. They aim to please, and their pleasant vibe bounces all over the sunny space.
