Cafe Colucci Creates Delicious Suff

restaurants, Ethiopian cuisine would make up a sizable slice. Nearly every neighborhood sports at least one Ethiopian restaurant; Rockridge and Temescal sport a lot. Granted, Oakland is home to one of North America’s largest Ethiopian and Eritrean populations. But face it: East Africans aren’t the only ones wolfing the wat.
