Chris says: “If you can afford it, spring for the Mesob. You will find that it’s worth every one of the 5000 pennies it’ll cost you for a fine family-style combination. You may want to try the Yebeg Alicha Fitfit, which sounds like the name of a Jedi Knight but is actually delightful lamb cooked with ginger, garlic and onion.”
