Another Adventure

This weekend, we took S to Atlanta to see the Braves play the Giants (more about that in a future post).  Since we don’t have an Ethiopian restaurant here, we always try to visit one when we travel to bigger cities.  Atlanta has a big Ethiopian population, so there were several to choose from, but our good friend Dave chose Queen of Sheba for us.  It was fabulous.

Awesome “tables” that are really just wicker baskets that they set the tray of injera on top.

Here we are (I think this may be the first picture of me on this blog…if so, hello world.)  Photo by S, who, by the way, had chicken nuggets from Chik-Fil-A that he brought with him.

We had doro wat (chicken), a beef/cheese dish, and a lamb dish.  The lamb was the best – delicious.

After dinner, we asked if there was an Ethiopian grocery in town, and as luck would have it, there was one very near.  So, we went by what looked like about half of an old gas station to the market.

Injera…

Spices…

And coffee…

Just another reason that left me wishing we lived in a bigger and more diverse city.  Oh, well, at least we can visit (and bring back lots of injera to freeze).

  1. That market looks amazing!! Once I get the courage to cook some Ethiopian dishes I’ll see if there is one in Chicago! Looks like you all had fun; isn’t the food delicious?! Yum!

  2. oh my goodness. i want to find a merkato now! 🙂 too fun

  3. I had to go to Atlanta to take a test in May, and while we were there, Wes and I went to Queen of Sheba, too! I even had the doro wat! It was our first experience with Ethiopian food, and we loved it! It is very authentic.

    I got your message on our blog, and we are in Tallahassee. You can email me at allforloveethiopia-blog@yahoo.com. Maybe we could get together for coffee sometime!
