Square Meal Review of Queen of Sheba ?

Less busy-looking than its competitor Lalibela down the road, the Queen of Sheba sets itself apart with pared-back decor & a few nods to its heritage. The simplicity of the furnishings allows the food to speak for itself – & speak, or rather shout, it certainly does. Glowing reviews focus on the speciality stewed meat dishes. These punchily flavoured stews come in rich sauces, contain myriad spices & are served with injera, the spongy Ethiopian flatbread. Other dishes worth sampling include the sambossas to start (pastry stuffed with mildly spiced meat or vegetables), & side orders of whole chillis stuffed with onion & tomato. To finish, the coffee ceremony shouldn’t be missed. It’s a key ritual in Ethiopia, & the charming women who run the show here put on a great performance.
