My favorite Ethiopian restaurant in Denver is Nile, a dark, moody and bustling restaurant in Aurora frequented by huge crowds of East Africans. The restaurant where I ordered the azifa, a cold salad made with green lentils, is the exact opposite of Nile: eerily quiet and a bit too bright, but the azifa, while certainly not the prettiest dish, makes up for its lack of beauty with vibrant spices, flecks of onion and garlic and jolts of fresh chiles.
Can you guess where I'm eating?
