Squaremeal Review of Lalibela ?

Lalibela is one of the holiest cities in Ethiopia, & while this eponymous restaurant might not be a centre of gastronomic pilgrimage, it certainly has devotees. The two-floor dining area is heady with the smell of frankincense, & has African artefacts packed into every corner. Your hands are your eating implements: ideal for tearing pieces of spongy, slightly sour injera bread & scooping up highly spiced curries packed with fish, meat or veg & served in earthenware vessels. Fresh salads add some much-needed lightness. It’s all feisty, filling stuff, great for sharing with groups of friends. The ceremonial coffee pouring is a fitting way to end meals, though that’s not the only libation offered – there are surprisingly good cocktails too. Happily, meals don’t cost much more than £20.
