Perhaps Boston’s most exotic dining experience, and certainly one of its most rewarding. Spicy Ethiopian stews arrive on huge sourdough pancakes as patrons sit on stools around woven tables. Be sure to start with a warm dip and the cottage cheese with red-pepper powder. Eating without silverware turns out to be easier than you think.
