Queen of Sheba International Foods Restaurant Review: Ethiopian food is built around a central theme: spicy stews sopped up by spongy injera bread. And, of course, you eat with your hands, which some people find more fun than others. Within these constraints, Queen of Sheba offers the widest selection of Ethiopian cuisine in town. The storefront presence is uninspiring and the décor is minimal, but don't let that deter you from an exotic culinary experience. Vegans and vegetarians will appreciate the many meat-free options, utilizing vegetables such as potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, green beans and mustard greens, as well as split peas and lentils. Meat eaters will enjoy the beef, lamb and chicken dishes. A couple of the more interesting options include zilzil tibs, beef chunks stewed in a spicy chile sauce, and tsebhi hamli, mustard greens tossed with flaxseed. The injera bread is typically made from corn, barley, and fermented teff (an ancient grain) that lends it a puckery sourdough taste. There are interesting cocktails and a refreshing house-made ginger juice to cool the flames.
