Fodor's Expert Review Zagol

$ Bur Dubai and the South Bank Ethiopian
Although it's in the sleepy end of Karama, it's best to make a reservation as Zagol only fits about 20 people. The food is authentically Ethiopian, and unless you understand Amharic, forget trying to read the menu. Instead, just order the mesob (vegetarian or non), a table-sized dish lined with injera bread that you then use as cutlery to mop up a range of spicy aromatic stew and salad that sit on top. Finish with traditional coffee and popcorn, then go down the road to Bikanervala (an Indian sweets shop) for dessert. Be warned: service is incredibly slow, but it's worth the wait. No alcohol served.
