I felt like Ethiopian so I decided to stop by Soretti’s with a friend. The restaurant has an intimate feel with a bar dominating the bulk of the space and tables spread out for customers who came in groups. There is a TV playing Ethiopian music videos and an assortment of African artwork scattered about.The menu is pretty clear cut, so that even the most unadventurous eater will find something.
Just to be clear the bulk of African foods are meant to be eaten by hand, and also shared to enhance the experience. Ethiopian food does this extremely well because even the “plate” your food is served on (injera) is meant to be consumed after its soaked in the flavors of the dishes its serving.
We ended up ordering Spicy Lamb Tibs (lamb cubes sauteed with oinon, jalepeno, and traditional herbs) and Dora Alicha (chicken pieces simmered in an onion, garlic, and tumeric sauce), as our meats. With Misir Wot (red lentils), Timtim Selata (tomato salad), and Misir Selata (chickpea salad). Consuming it by hand with the aid of additional injera made sure that it hit the spot!
Can I say Yum? Next time you are in the mood for food give Ethiopian food a try!
