We finally tried it! We used a gift certificate we got from Restaurant.com!
Here is our experience at Queen of Sheba in Tampa, FL.
Hot Tea $2.00
Served with a side of sugar.
Matt ordered this tea that was very good and reminded us of chai tea.
This was SO good! Very crispy thin outside and hot beefy inside! The two sauces on the side were spicy and delicious, though we could not put our finger on what they were.
Queen’s Eight Meal Platter
Starting at left green item and going clockwise: collard greens, potatoes and carrots, lentils, chicken, lamb, beef, chickpeas, and in the center boiled egg and chicken drumstick. Don’t let the portion fool you! When this first arrived we both thought that this plate wasn’t going to fill us up. We were wrong.
Ethiopian cuisine does not include silverware. Instead they use injera (pictured above). We tore pieces of this off and used it to pick up the various foods. I wish I had gotten a clearer picture but when we first saw it, it reminded us of rolled up ace bandages. Its very thin and light and so good with the food!
Everything was very good. Even though we thought some things were more bland than we expected, the experience made up for it! This would be so fun to do with a group of people. Interactive food is the best! Matts favorite was the lentil mix and mine was the chickpeas. Kind of weird considering we are both heavy meat eaters.
We will definitely be coming back again, next time with a few more extra people to join in the fun! PLUS we saved $25 with our Restaurant.com gift certificate!
