New Ethiopian Restaurant Opening in SoMa

A new and soon-to-open Ethiopian restaurant in SoMa has been getting all kinds of coverage in Eater, Grub Street, SFoodie, and Live SOMA (and I am sure I’m missing probably five more outlets). ~MOYA~ is aiming for a July 1st opening, serving lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Owner Fana Alemayehu has enjoyed cooking as a hobby, and after encouragement from her friends, is going to be sharing her home-cooked recipes and made-from-scratch dishes with us. She wants to use local and organic ingredients when possible, and will have beef and lamb dishes along with a variety of vegetarian and vegan options. (Check out the menu here.) Weekend brunch will feature both American and Ethiopian dishes, like fule (beans, onion, tomato, and jalapeño); kentha (cracked wheat with butter), and chechebsa (bread with butter and olive oil, plus egg, tomato, onion, and jalapeño). There will also be Ethiopian coffee service. 1044 Folsom St. at 6th St., 415-431-5544.
