Queen of Sheba
Queen of Sheba
The Hell’s Kitchen setting is far from regal, but Queen of Sheba puts out a noble spread. Dip your porous injera into spicy dishes such as doro tibs (chicken) or green lentils with green chili. The liberally applied berbere spice is a complex, flavorful tongue-burner. Lamb kebabs are on hand, as is kitfo, raw prime beef drenched in basil butter. Ethiopian honey wine and baklava round out your royal treatment.

Although this place is in Hell's Kitchen, it tends to feel out of the way as it is rarely packed with a good sized crowd. For newbies (or an old timer fan of Ethiopian food such as myself), the combo platters (veggie, meat, or mixed) are strongly recommended. This way, you get a sampling of much of what Ethiopia has to offer and decide on what dish to focus later.
