Meskerem Ethiopian Restaurant
St. Louis, MO 63118
Riverfront Times' Description
An Ethiopian restaurant likely to appeal to novice and connoisseur alike, Meskerem is a welcome addition to South Grand's multi-culti mix. Even the injera - the spongy, slightly sour bread with which you scoop up your food - is better than average here. Newcomers might want to try the Meskerem Combo, which offers both straightforward tibs wat (beef in the classic Ethiopian berbere sauce), and the more interesting gomen besaega (beef with collard greens). Vegetarians will find several delicious lentil, chickpea and sautéed vegetable dishes, while adventurous carnivores may want to try kitfo, raw beef chopped very fine and seasoned with clarified butter and fiery mitmita chile powder.
Tips from foursquare
Share the vegetarian sampler, the single serves two and the double serves four.
The veggie combo is awesome.
Try the Tibswat, it's awesome! Also a fan of the beef sambosa.
Get the Azifa appetizer with the Kwanta Firfir, you can NOT go wrong. And I love the two hostesses/waitresses, they rock!
The Meskerem Special Fish is tha bomb!
