I really like Ethiopian food so on my long layover I knew I wanted to do a food tour. Go Addis was the most established one and it worked w/ my layover timing so I booked it. The guide, Mule, was very nice and easy to talk to. We talked about a lot of different subjects throughout the afternoon, and he taught me many things about Ethiopia that I didn't know before. It ended up being a private tour because I guess nobody else booked. We started by going on a tour of Shola Market, which is supposed to be more traditional than Merkato. Mule pointed out all the different spices, the different items they made out of the false banana plant, the traditional covers for injera and traditional tables, the different coffee beans being sold (from green for those who want to roast it themselves, through different roasts), and the equipment they use to roast coffee. We then went into the women's traditional clothing section and he explained about when women where which dresses. After walking around Shola market, we took a taxi to our first food stop, a vegan restaurant where they served shiro wot. I really like shiro, and the flavor they got out of this one was amazing. The injera was made fresh in house too. This was probably my favorite food stop of the three, because it was probably the best shiro wot I've ever had. Next was on to a seafood house that specialized in fried fish. That was good as well. The last food stop was a special beef restaurant where Mule ordered traditional beef tibs for me. It was well seasoned and overall very nice. Finally we finished with a stop at a traditional coffee house, where I saw how coffee is traditionally prepared and drank. He ordered a cinnamon tea for himself. I had never seen cinnamon tea before so he got me a second cup so I could try some. Completely full of yummy food and happy, he walked me back to my layover hotel to finish the tour. Mule was great to have as a guide and Go Addis put together a nice mix of restaurants to take their guests to on this tour.
