Seattle Weekly's Description
Meskel's big terrace was made for warm summer nights, and the waiters are content to let you while away a few hours over glasses of Harar beer and honey wine. Being rained out is no loss, though, because this Central District restaurant's warm interior is the perfect place to fortify yourself against the damp with braised meats and spices. Meskel's kitfo (beef mixed with spiced butter) may not be the city's best, but the yebeg tibbs (lamb sautéed with onions and chiles) is, and the red lentils and pureed chickpeas on the vegetable combo will leave both vegetarians and omnivores agog.
Tips from foursquare
Probably the best Ethiopian food in town! Love the vegetarian plate and shiro
On a nice night, go for the patio seating.
They're closed Mondays.
The Kitfo is amazing -- as is the Green Chicken and a vegetarian platter. Enjoy!
Order the kitfo (Ethiopian version of beef tartare)... be adventurous! Their latte is a must too.. forget your coffee shops'!
