Mesob has been around about ten years selling some of the better Ethiopian food in town. The treat is the bar in the back room, which has an island/tiki feel to it, due not just to the raffia roofs over the bamboo booths, but also the ramshackle, low-budget extension to the building that houses them. The cocktails are nothing to write back to the mainland about, but you can sip them in a pleasantly casual vibe, with the smell of spices and incense wafting through the air.
Building constructed: 1948
