A Must (w/ my 3rd/4th? set of notes) – My new discovery: Assab on Geary... GREAT food! Fresh and wonderfully prepared and served. I have been to several Eritrean and Ethopian places and this one is the BEST. Everything was VERY fresh--it took a while to get the food but it was VERY much worth the wait. I am DEFINITELY going back and am telling everyone who likes this cuisine to try Assab. Thanks! 12/2005: It's three years now that I've been going here, and it's still good as of Dec 2005. EXCELLENT SERVICE AND EXCELLENT FOOD!!! It continues: Still good in April 2006! EXCELLENT. You gotta try it!
As Good As It Gets – As someone who has sampled African food in many parts of the world (including Africa) I can honestly say this is the most wonderful place I have ever been to. They have a variety of amazing dishes for vegetarians (the chickpea entree is incredible), the injera is perfection, and most importantly you are treated with that wonderful African hospitality (don't be surprised if they bring you more injera on the house so you can finish ever last bit of food on the plate). I have taken my parents here as well as a number of friends, and everyone has fallen in love with Assab. It really doesn't get any better than this.
One of my favorites! – I discovered Assab over a year ago (it's in my neighborhood), and have wanted to tell people about it ever since. This family owned restaurant is a total find. The food is great, fresh, and great for sharing. The value is amazing. Now that the secret is out though, I might start having to wait for a table!
Delicious – A TRUE find. Very low key, simple decor. The friendliest proprieter, who treated us like family. The real treat was the food. Amazing lamb, injera, and chicken, which we dug into, in true traditional eritean family eating style. The beer (harar?) is also a great light lager, went well with the rich flavors. Great veggie sides as well. And cheap, to top it off!
