This Ethiopian resto has more to offer than just finger-lickin' shiro wett (a highly spiced chickpea and lentil blend) --including a full bar, cocktail list, and affordable, by-the-glass wine selection.
Unlike the majority of pan-Afrian restaurants in the neighborhood, Zoma stands out with polished service and an elegant decor...making it a great spot for a date (especially if you like watching people play with their food!)
Best of all, dinner for three cost just $25 each--including alcohol.
On the combination plate we tried (pictured), the tastiest morsels included tibs wett (stewed sirloin), doro alticha (mildly herbed stewed chicken) & gomen be sigo (collard green and sauteed beef).
