Raw Meat, Ethiopian Style
I've loved Ethiopian cuisine since the first time I tried it. Until I visited Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital, I'd never heard of kitfo. This delicacy, which can probably be found at some Ethiopian restaurants in the United States if you look hard enough, is raw meat, eaten, of course, with injera, the spongy bread Ethiopians use to scoop up their food. The next day when I met up with an Ethiopian friend, I told him about my raw meat adventure. "You didn't eat it completely raw, did you?" I nodded affirmatively. "And you're okay today?" he asked. I nodded affirmatively again. It was delicious and I'd eat it again--yes, raw--on my next visit back to Addis Ababa.
