Best Ethiopian: Saba

The people have spoken.

When figuring out where to go for dinner, how many times have you tried to get something healthy and fresh that’s like nothing you’ve ever had? For most in Seattle, Saba fits all three requirements. Get the veggie combo: affordable, healthy, and a great introductory sampling of Ethiopian food. If you want to be adventurous, get the doro wot, a spicy red stew. But if you’re feeling very adventurous, try the kitfo, raw lean beef with pepper powder and Ethopian butter. 110 12th Ave., 328-2290

First runner-up: Kezira

Second runner-up: Chef Cafe
