This week I'm counting down my ten favorite dishes of 2007 -- and the absolute worst thing I ate all year.

#10. Kitfo at Meskerem Ethiopian Restaurant

Without doubt, the most exotic food I ate this year. Meskerem's menu compares kitfo to steak tartare. The dishes certainly look more or less identical: A mound of chopped raw beef resembles nothing but a mound of chopped raw beef. But the flavor of kitfo is something else entirely, a pure iron tang that smacks you in the mouth and then peppers the wound. The meat is so luscious that it almost dissolves within its pocket of thin, sour injera bread.
