My wife wanted an adventure to East Africa so we headed to East San Diego! This Eritrean restaurant was very traditional. The food was served as curry-like sauces on these huge pancakes. Using the pancake as a utensil, you scoop or dip everything.They had a couple of East African Beers on the menu so we went for the Asmara Lager. It was light and refreshing pilsner style beer that not necessarily complimented the type of food. The malt flavor is evident of adjuncts but I couldn't quite pinpoint what it might have been. The body and carbonation was on the lighter side as well as the aroma and hop flavor. My wife loved the food so I'm sure we'll go there again. Next time, I'll try the other brew.
