Our third trip to this delightful reprieve from French food--and don't me wrong, I love French food. But once in a while, it's nice to have a change. If you've read Cutting for Stone, then you remember how the Ethopian characters in the book longed for some 'wot'. And now I understand why. Delicious food, tender meats and vegetables with unique seasonings and tastes ranging from mild to spicy. Each time we've dined we've gotten one of the meat tastings and one of the vegetable. It comes combined served in a large shared pan lined with Ethiopian bread--a delicious kind of spongy sort of naan like substance--which serves both as a delicious sponge for all the sauces and also as the table's utensils as one tears a piece of bread and wraps it around the food before delivering it to the mouth. Oh, didn't I mention everything is eaten with your hands! Except for dessert when a fork appears for ripe mango or chocolate cake. Which makes this a special experience on another level. Highly recommended.
