Here’s what Stephen Kinzer of the “New York Times” said about Omar’s and his wife’s Lula’s other business, Lula’s East African Cafe.
Where to Eat
Fine ethnic places are sprouting all over town. For inexpensive and delightfully original dishes from Africa, try Lula’s Cafe at 2921 North Oakland Avenue, (414) 962–1183. Ethiopian, Somali and Eritrean specialties, including one made with goat meat, come with injera, a tasty flatbread, and alicha, made from lentils and cabbage. Four can eat heartily for $40. Daily 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
