Asmara To Go

Travels with Hilary has published a profile of Asmara and some brief commentary on the take-out food she picked up at the Oak Street Eritrean restaurant.

Asmara (the restaurant) serves its dishes in the traditional way, on injera, a spongy bread made from unleavened teff flour. This bread is used as an eating utensil: You break off bits and use it to grab the main dish, which is usually a tsebhi, a stew of peas, lentil, and red pepper. It’s available vegetarian style or with chicken, beef, or lamb.
