Tucked next to the well known Pomegranate on College Street is one of Toronto’s best kept secrets, Sheba Restaurant. The food is spicy and interesting and the space warm and welcoming. Ethiopian food is all about sharing, so take a band of friends and tuck into a communal platter with an array of dishes and injera bread. Eating with your fingers is typical and makes the experience that much more fun. Favorite dishes include ground split chickpea sauce cooked with onions served in a clay pot called shiro, a vegetarian platter featuring six dishes and kifko which is a traditional dish like steak tartare. Or, go for a combo platter so that you can sample a bit of everything. Dishes are tangy with spicy mustard flavors taste unique to the region. Top it all off with traditional Ethiopian coffee, chat to the beautiful sisters Assi and Seble who run Sheba Restaurant and add to the exotic atmosphere.
