I just tried Ethiopian food for the first time. Three of us got a plate of things with unrecognizable names. The only utensil on the table was bread.
All the items were excellent, but one thing really struck me. The centerpiece was made up of chicken, and hard-boiled proto-chickens, in a chili based sauce. Except for the eggs, it was almost identical to a dish of Pollo Adobo I got in Santa Fe a couple of years ago. Interesting bit of cultural synchronicity.
I wish I could rememer the restaurant name. It is in Washington DC near 18th street and California.
