Ethiopian Fare Comes to the Hill; Boozy Birthday Shakes at Hot Cakes

Here’s hoping that platters of wat and injera can turn around the seemingly cursed corner spot on North Capitol Hill most recently occupied by Skelly & the Bean. CHS reports that Abay Ethiopian is moving into 2359 10th Ave. E., a space also filled in recent years by Easy Joe’s, Tidbit and Cassis (now operating in West Seattle.) Looking to attract diners residing on the Hill and in the U-District, owner Blen Mamo Teklu expects to open Abay Ethiopian’s doors in the next few weeks.

In other news, Hot Cakes is celebrating the first birthday of its brick-and-mortar location in Ballard. All day Saturday, May 25, Autumn Martin’s molten chocolate cakery at 5427 Ballard Avenue NW is serving special treats, including half-price cakes in a jar and $6 boozy birthday shakes.
