Eating authentically prepared food lets you taste the very essence of a country without chewing on its national flag. Salute global cuisine with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $20 for a vegetarian Ethiopian meal for two, which includes one appetizer, two vegetarian combos, and two desserts (up to a $41.85 value)
- $25 for a combo Ethiopian meal for two, which includes one appetizer, one meat combo, one vegetarian combo, and two desserts (up to a $49.85 value)
- $20 for two Groupons, each good for $20 worth of brunch, valid Saturday or Sunday (a $40 total value)
For the first two options, choose an appetizer to start, such as a traditional Ethiopian salad called a selata, or vegetarian rolls packed with lentils, split peas, and fresh greens. The vegetarian combo includes a taste of three vegan dishes: misser wot, a split red-lentil stew; shiro wot, a ground pea-and-onion stew; and gomen, sautéed greens. The meat combo includes four dishes, one more than Charlie’s Angels and two more than _Starsky and Hutch_—doro wot, a spicy chicken stew; yebeg alicha, lamb cooked in herb butter; spris, sautéed beef cubes; and bozena shiro, chopped prime beef and ground peas. All meals come with injera, a spongy, unleavened bread, and a choice of dessert: baklava, tapioca pudding, or tiramisu.

Wooden arches and light-gauze curtains invite diners into Queen Sheba, a cool, tranquil interior rich with the meandering aromas of exotic spices and authentic Ethiopian recipes. An intimate table hosts diners as they enjoy hearty stews crafted with traditional spice mixtures such as mitmita and berbere, which accentuate the chunks of lamb or beef. A spongy serving of injera, a disk of unleavened bread, soaks up spicy sauces, and bites of fresh-cut okra accompany all plates, acting as edible silverware for the authentic stews, not unlike a using pixie sticks as chop sticks. Vegan red-lentil stews or ground peas seasoned with ginger and garlic further rope in taste buds trying to play hard to get.
