April 27/Day 117 - Mesob at an Ethiopian Restaurant

A Mesob is a tabletop on which food is traditionally served. The mesob is usually woven from straw, and it has a lid that is kept on it until it is time to eat. When the food is ready, the top is taken off the mesob, and the food is placed in the basin which forms the top of the mesob. An injera (made usinf teff flour) is placed in the mesob and the various dishes are served on top of the injera.

A great foodie experience it was! This picture was taken at an Ethiopian restaurant located in Little Ethiopia in Los Angeles.
