Meskerem Report

Went to Meskerem (uptown) last night. Don't really have much to compare it to, as its the only Ethiopian I've ever had, but I thought it was excellent. For apps I tried the sambosas (both lentil and beef). Very similar to their Indian cousin samosas, but in my opinion much better. Perfectly fried to the point of greaslessness, and served with a spicy berbere pepper sauce. For the main course, had the sampler platter which consisted of the spongy injera bread, two vegetarian purees (one yellow lentil and the other red lentil- at least I think that's what it was), chicken stewed in berbere sauce, lamb in a green sauce, and collard greens with beef. All of this is served on one platter and is eaten with torn pieces of injera. Mix and match tastes as you please. And don't look for utensils. All in all it was an interesting and tasty dinging experience, and you can;t beat the price. Two of us walked out of there stuffed for under $35.
