Awash Ethiopian--Report

sds | Apr 5, 2006 01:47 PM

Sad to say, I was really disappointed in my visit. I love Ethiopian food, and many of the dishes were not very good. We started with the Sambusa (Ethiopian version of the Indian Samosa). Both arrived dripping in oil; the beef one was tender and flavorful, the lentil one was dry and flavorless.

We ordered the vegetarian combo and the lamb combo; the 3 lamb dishes were average. 1 was a stir fried version, the meat was really dried out, the other 2 were tasty, but extremely greasy.

the vegetarian dishes, were not great. the 2 lentil dishes were served cold (they are not supposed to be) and the collard greens were lukewarm. The cabbage dish was the most tasty, but lacked flavor.

I used to live in DC which has phenomenal Ethiopian food, and was sorely disappointed with my visit.
