Tonight was my first time going to Mesob's and actually my first time ever eating Ethiopian food.
For appetizer I had Timatim Fit Fit which I enjoyed. It was pretty mild though (I was expecting it to be hot since it had jalapeño in it).
I had a glass of mango juice which was bad. It tasted sugary & processed.
As an entree, I ordered the vegetarian sampler and enjoyed most of it. The sampler allows you to choose 6 vegetarian options, the six I chose were:
1. Misir Wet
2. Kik Alicha
3. Dinich Wet
4. Tikil Gomen
5. Atkilt Alicha
6. Ye'shimbra Asa
(I numbered then in order of how I liked them--1 I liked best, 6 I liked least).
I really did love the lentils & split peas the most. If I come again, I would definitely order that. They were just so perfectly seasoned & cooked. I actually liked all the options I chose for my sampler except my 6th choice Ye'shimbra Asa. I couldn't quite pinpoint what I disliked about it, I think it may have been the texture of the chickpea biscuit. I personally wouldn't get that again.
The food portion they give is pretty generous, I couldn't finish it all and therefore had no room for dessert. I did have a cup of the Ethiopian coffee though. It was good, really strong.
Service was not bad at all. Very kind, courteous & helpful staff. The place was busy but we were seated right away with no reservation. The place was clean & I liked the decor/atmosphere.
All in all, had a great time, enjoyed the food & will come again in the future. I'd recommend trying this place.
