Then we ordered the Super Messob Exclusive. This dish is served communally and eaten in without silverware but with that soft spongey thin Ethiopian bread (injera). This type of eating is apparently called Gursha. On this giant plater are:
Doro Wot. Chicken stewed in pepper sauce with an assortment of spices. This is the reddish drumstick in the foreground. Super tasty.
Siga Wot. Strips of beef, braised in red pepper sauce with assorted spices. The leftmost of the deep red dishes. My favorite!
Yebeg Siga Alitcha. Mild lamb stew, delicately spiced w/garlic, ginger and assorted spices. The greenish dish to the left of the vegetables in the front.
Yater Alitcha. Steamed peas with onions, seasoned with garlic and ginger. The yellow stuff.
Kitffo. Finely chopped lean beef w/spiced butter and mitmita (hot spiced chilies).
Tibs. Sautéed strips of Beef w/onions and green chilies. The beef on the right.
Yatakilt Alitcha. Steamed Vegetables with onions, seasoned with garlic and ginger. The foreground veggies.
Tomato Fit-Fit. Tomato tossed with injera. The pink/orange dish to the far left.
Yemisir Wot. Split Lentil in red pepper sauce, seasoned with assorted spices. The middle one of the deep red dishes. My favorite of the vegetables.
All in all, a fun afternoon.
