what was consumed: ... i forget. it's been quite some time since i've been (probably because adams morgan is soo far and i've found some other places that have taken my fancy~)
i love ethiopian food (have i mentioned that before? hahaha). i love injera, i love the dishes, i love eating with my hands. when i first came to DC, people were telling me to go to meskerem. i ended up having ethiopian at awash first, but christine and i head over to meskerem just a few days later.
the food at meskerem was good. they have the usual ethiopian fare (i.e., i ask the server what i want and ask him/her to choose according to his/her judgement - ha!), though i'll have to admit that their spicy was not as spicy as i like it. good injera as well - delicious! also, they have a great honey wine - i definitely recommend it. the ambiance is good as well - very "authentic," or so i'm told (what do i know?!) with the tables, chairs, decor. the downside is that this pretty popular ethiopian restaurant is located in the even more popular adams morgan. aka a wait to get in, lots of people ... both a pro and con. maybe i'm just impatient - ha!
