THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Meskerem Ethiopian Restaurant Review

: You can never go wrong with the yedor watt (known elsewhere as doro watt), the richly seasoned chicken stew plus hard-cooked egg served traditionally on injera bread. We also favor the kik alitcha, a purée of yellow split peas, gently seasoned with herbs and spices and served with a mound of injera. Ask about house specialties. The décor is bright and cheery with a splashy sun motif.
