    Mambo Kabob House

    1101 San Pablo Albany CA 94706
    A swell and eccentric reuse of a fast-food restaurant, turned into a calm West African restaurant offering not just kabobs, but also an interesting array of curries and stews, including the signature mambo, lamb, chicken, or tofu stewed with cabbage, carrots, and lentils, and perked up by adding the excellent More

    Highly popular among the neighborhood's Ethiopian/Eritrean community, this bright little eatery offers authentic cuisine of the Tigré region, in versions that are fully seasoned. The emphasis is on vegetables -- a fiery mushroom stew (kintishara) replaces the more usual kitfo (African "beef tartare"), providing much the same flavors, minus the More

Over Aziza's lifespan, the restaurant has undergone a quasi-mystical metamorphosis: What started out as San Francisco's best Moroccan restaurant, serving refined versions of classic salads and tajines, has turned into one of the city's best restaurants, period. Chef-owner Mourad Lahlou has embraced many of the techniques and aesthetics of modernist More

At this Senegalese restaurant, tackle an order of tiep dien, red snapper cooked with a spiced rice pilaf, or enjoy a rum-laced cocktail and surround yourself with appetizing nibbles such as fried plantains with tamarind sauce, the deep-fried tuna pastries known as pasteles, or clove-and-garlic-seasoned sautéed shrimp. Bissap Baobab is More

Pleasant large Mission storefront where spicy Ethiopian stews are served family-style, heaped on spongy, slighty sour injera bread layered on big platters. Additional rolls of injera are provided to tear off and use to pick up bites of kitfo (buttery chopped beef, served raw or lightly cooked), tibsie derho (chicken More

CLOSED The former Pasha has reinvented itself, serving up lighter, more inventive Moroccan cuisine without sacrificing its drumming, belly-dancing, tented-opulence atmosphere. Creamy tuna tartare with capers and cumin, seafood-stuffed bastilla with saffron and coriander, and seared duck with apricots and couscous are among the menu's standouts; chicken dishes and vegetables More

An offshoot of Bissap Baobab, the rollicking Senegalese restaurant right around the corner on mission St., Little Baobab is more of a club than an eatery--well-known for its reggae and afro-pop dance nights. The menu is similar to the larger restaurant's--festive, shareable Senegalese and Pan-African appetizers and entrees, like shrimp More

In a small, sunken, tented dining room alongside a funky jazz boîte, you'll find the most authentic and flavor-packed Ethiopian food this side of south Oakland, probably the sole Ethiopian eatery this side of the bay to merit attention. Perfect kitfo (fiery and complex "beef tartare"), fine doro wat (a More
