A mouthful of raw beef

I ate at Chef Wondiy's again today — I really do recommend it if you're in the Toronto area (or passing through). So far it's the best Ethiopian place I've eaten at (in either Toronto or Philly anyway). I went there today with Saira*, one of my few meat eating friends, and here is what we had:

This meat is cooked.

This meat is raw.

Raw closeup!

The raw meat was the experiment. When I ordered it, the waitress asked me three times to be sure I knew what I was ordering. Then the chef came out (a very friendly fellow), and made sure. When I confirmed, he expressed his happiness that I was going to eat it the traditional way and seemed very pleased with me.

The raw beef was exceptional, but I will admit that it was not the easiest thing to eat. I eat sushi all the time, but this really was quite alien to my palette, and seemed, for lack of a better word, very heavy. In any case, it was extremely good, and I will have it again.

* I talked to Saira about how there are some straightedge members attacking other members that had “lost the edge”. She wondered if hippies ever attacked ex-hippies for quitting pot and rejecting psyche-rock.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
