Fasika Ethiopian Restaurant
Inside Fasika Ethiopian Restaurant, companions gather around a traditional mesob, a table woven from colorful straw, for a communal dining experience. Upon the mesob’s concave surface, servers nestle a broad platter that holds a family-style meal neatly scooped out onto a foundation of spongy injera bread. Diners dive in together, tearing scraps of injera, which they use to pinch turmeric-spiced bites of beef, lamb, poultry, and veggies from the menu's selection of specialty dishes. Between bites, patrons can sip tej, a wine fermented from hops and raw honey that is served hot or cold. After meals, rounds of warming coffee signal the repast's end as clearly as the gong that sounds at the end of a Shakespearian soliloquy.
“The food was great - interesting ambience, very authentic and down to earth. The restaurant had a neighborhood feel to it and seemed to be popular with the local crowd.”
“Great food, great service! (Could do without the video screen in the dining room, but not as distracting as some other places that have that.”
“Great Food. If Service and Staff were a little better then this would have been a wonderful place. They have a great 'potential' to be a really popular place.”
