About request an edit to this page

Selam is an Ethiopian restaurant in San Jose with a great breakfast specialty—foul (pronounced “fool,” as in “I pity the fool who doesn’t try this”). This breakfast dish comes in a small, deep bowl with fava beans simmered with spiced butter, onions, tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, powdered spicy red pepper and a dash of plain yogurt. Selam’s breakfast foul is warm and comforting and spicy, with a nice crunch of the pepper. Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, and this San Jose breakfast place makes an excellent espresso.
