What to eat in and around Seattle today: Queen Sheba

If you’re hankering for some Ethiopian cuisine, look no further than Queen Sheba Seattle.

The family-owned restaurant in the Broadway District serves up meat and vegetable dishes on traditional injera, a type of Ethiopian flatbread that has a texture resembling a crepe.

As the restaurant says on its Facebook page, you won’t need a fork to indulge in these rich flavours because you can eat most dished with your hands, ripping the injera apart to wrap the dishes in before bringing them to your mouth.

When you stop by this eatery, make sure you arrive hungry because you’ll want to sample lots of what it has to offer.

Start with fresh salad and vegetable rolls before moving on to a family-style sharing platter.

Once on the main course, you can pair one of their delicious offerings with a tasty drink. We also recommend trying a side of okra with your meal.
