Located near the Pigneto district, Mesob is arguably the best Ethiopian restaurant in Rome. The food is prepared daily with imported Ethiopian spices, and served on injera, a sourdough flat bread which is used traditionally in place of cutlery.
Dining is a communal experience, with guests enjoying meals from a shared platter. The menu includes Ethiopian vegetarian and meat specialities including spicy lentils, slow-cooked kale, doro wat (chicken with onions, garlic, ginger and spices), kay tibs (lean beef with green halapeno peppers), and baklava sweet pastry for dessert.
Open daily for lunch and dinner, with Ethiopian coffee ceremonies on Saturday evenings.
