new york city foodsteps
Who knew getting an Audi would take me to a town called Montclair in New Jersey all the way from Newport in Jersey City to eat Ethiopian food, when I haven’t exhausted my NYC restaurant list, yet!
The place looked more upscale (if you will), then any of the Ethiopian restaurants I have been to till date. The food is not the best (I think Meskerem in NYC leads), but the food is not bad. Infact, there are a few more vegetarian options for the platter than some of the other places that I have been to. The timatim fitfit here was the best amongst all the places I’ve been to. Maybe the generous lemon juice did it, but it did do it well.
According to the menu, Mesob would accommodate gluten free foods, replacing the injera with a gluten free item (that requires an earlier request of about two days), rice or pasta. This was a first for an Ethiopian restaurant that I’ve visited, yet.
The service was very polite. Sure visit if you are in the area.
Timatim fitfit – injera pieces with a fresh tomato salad and lots of lime juice. Refreshing, served cold.
