Bon Vivant 1: Messob

  • Siga Wot - Spicy beef stew dish mixed with Berbere spices

  • Yebeg Siga Alicha - We ordered this lamb dish, but asked them to mix it with the sauce/spices similar to the Siga Wot

  • Kitfo - Finely chopped raw beef mixed with ghee butter and Mitmita (served with homemade cottage cheese)

  • Injera - Porous like spongy sourdough flat bread used as a plate for Ethiopian food and as a utensil to pick up the food as well

  • Mitmita - Orange red seasoning that's made of ground African chili powder, cardamom, salt, cloves, and sometimes may include cinnamon, cumin, and ginger

  • Ghee - Clarified butter

  • Berbere - Spice mixture of chili peppers, garlic, ginger, basil, korarima, rue, ajwain or radhuni, nigella, and fenugreek (popular spice in Ethiopian dishes)

  • Tej aka Honey Wine - Alcoholic beverage created by fermenting water, honey and fruits, hops, or grains. A similar alcoholic drink is called Mead. Although, usually high in alcohol content, it is masked by the sweetness made by the honey. This drink is placed in a Berele (similar to a florence flask) and goes well with the spices from the Ethiopian food. Messob makes its own Honey Wine.
