Empress Taytu Ethiopian Restaurant Restaurant Review: At this Northern African restaurant, guests are seated in thatched huts at low, basket-style messobs (tables). No silverware is needed, as spongy injera bread---used to sop up stew---stands in place of forks and knives. (Don't worry, though: silverware is available upon request.) Menu highlights include tibs, small chunks of beef, lamb, chicken or shrimp sautéed in onion, rosemary and spiced butter. Kitfo and gored consist of raw beef mixed with a spicy sauce. Several combination platters are available, and they are ideal for sampling a range of flavors in one sitting. Instead of dessert, which isn’t really part of the Ethiopian diet, opt for the enchanting, ceremonial Ethiopian coffee service.
