I love the food here. It is unique to Ethiopia and really tasty. Fine for veggie or carnivore. It is all served on a big platter atop injera sponge bread. You will love the way this light and healthy bread goes with everything.
Wash your hands when you get there because you eat without utensils, using only the bread. It is not messy. Out of respect, you should remember to use your right hand only when eating. The food is wonderfully flavorful, but it probably has a lot of sodium, because the next day our wedding rings are really tight from puffy fingers. If you have issues with sodium, this may not be the best choice for you.
The only thing I do NOT like is that sometimes the server will show you 'how' to eat this food. The server will put the plate on the table, then wrap up a piece of food and hand-feed it to one of the guests at your table. Maybe it is a cultural thing for the servers at Ras Kassa's, but eewww!
I don't think they realize that most Americans are uncomfortable with this. My husband has been 'fed' twice as have a few guests of ours. They were all VERY uncomfortable and grossed out. I think this is because a stranger is directly touching your food with their hands and sticking it in your mouth. It feels too intimate for a stranger to hand feed me. I excuse myself, just before the food is served to avoid this. Sure wish they wouldn't do this!! Otherwise, the food is great!
