Lentil Sambusa AKA (Samosa) at Meskerm Ethiopian Restaurant, Briarcliff, #Atlanta


Every so often I stumble upon a restaurant that I was not intending to go to because I failed to make a reservation at a neighboring restaurant. I had the Sambusa for my appetizer, which is pretty much the Ethiopian version of a Samosa. I think they made it from scratch being as it took quite sometime for it to be brought to the table. Despite my impatience, they were worth the wait they were crispy hot and the lentils were perfectly seasoned.

I had the chance to meet Chef Marcus Samuelsson this past May at the James Beard Awards. The Award Show featured many of the chef’s that are featured on highly rated TV shows and Owner’s of some of the best restaurants in the country; definitely the Grammy’s or Oscars of Food, Wine and Beverage!

The James Beard Foundation has dozens of events throughout the country with various chef’s and food personalities.
