Sure, Asmara's the old stalwart Ethiopian/Eritrean dining spot in Temescal, but my recent visit there wasn't exactly satisfactory. The Tibsy Fitfit was the best dish, but the Zigg Ni, Doro Watt & Ye-beg Alicha were forgettable.
I found Addis to be a much better choice (from my last 2 visits there). Yesterday, we had:
- Yedoro wat (prepared with much better care than at Asmara);
- Yesega Wot (absolutely delicious);
- Alicha Denich;
- Ater Kik; and
- Yemeser Wot, which was absolutely ambrosial!
I hope Asmara improves soon, it's got some serious competition here.
