    22 December 2003 – Rawmeatmeal (57k image)

    This is for those vegetarians amongst you! Raw meat or tre sega is considered a delicacy here in Ethiopia. The meat is brought in great lumps and people dive in and cut it into small, bite sized lumps before dipping it in a spicy, chilli sauce reminiscent of Japanese horse radish sauce, wrapping it in injera (the bread like pancake you can see) and popping it into ones mouth.

    The taste is........ok. It tends to be a bit chewy but the taste itself is not too bad although it took some time to overcome the aversion to eating hunks of raw, quivering, uncooked meat. It's supposed to be bad for the worms though :-)
