For Tonight: Who has the best Kitfo (Ethiopian-Spiced Raw Beef) in the LA/OC area?
Craving really good spicy, flavorful kitfo. My current favorite places to get it are Rosalind's and Ibex but I would like to try another restaurant. As a point of comparison, I do not like Meals by Genet as I think they dumb down their spice profile for Americans. (Note I do not mean heat - you can get hot food there, it just lacks the subtle flavors vs other restaurants in Little Ethiopia on Fairfax.) I have never been to any of the Ethiopian restaurants in Anaheim: have car will travel if the hounds recommend it.
I love kitfo, and I've always enjoyed the version at Merkato, which is spicy and authentic. I know it's very near the others you've tried, but it's delicious.
Although I have yet to try it, I have seen the kitfo at Awash, and it also looks excellent:
Hope that helps.
