All the basics are here: good injera, friendly servers, central location, sweet breeze coming in from Pike Place Market on a hot afternoon. But it's the little corners of Pan Africa's menu that make it stand out—people love the coconutty chicken, apricots, and dates; or a North African frittata with lamb sausage for brunch on weekends. My secret love is the Market Salad, described dully as "greens tossed with market fresh fruits and tomatoes tossed in our house dressing." In reality, it is the undullest salad on the planet, a fantasia of the freshest fruits and vegetables from Pike Place, all perfectly, weirdly, and awesomely mixed up.
