Fasika FTW!

Sorry, but we had dinner at Fasika two nights ago and it was not a good experience. The service is very slow. Maybe 20-25 minutes before the food arrived. That is surprising since the food appears to consist largely of stews which one would assume have been cooking slowly for some hours and should be ready to serve. There were two of us and we ordered a lamb dish and a beef dish. Neither the lamb nor the beef were edible. Literally. Too tough to chew. Whether this was an ingredient problem or a cooking issue was hard to tell. If we were to return, which is doubtful, we would stick to the chopped meat items on the menu. A safer bet would be to head down the vegetarian road.
