It’s no secret that I am hopelessly obsessed with Mesob, Kuki Tadese’s Ethiopian restaurant on the Via Prenestina near Pigneto. The obsession is so deep, so complete, that even though I am happy here at home in the States for the holidays, it is painful to know I can’t pop into to Mesob for the New Year’s Feast.
