Sheba's Ethiopian Kitchen Cooks with Soul

With heady spices, fresh ingredients and loads of butter, this restaurant will send you home with a happy stomach.

Picture vegetable dishes plated in a ring around an injera-lined plate — red lentils and powdered chickpeas, both cooked down into intensely flavorful and thick stews, cabbage and carrots cooked with potatoes, salad greens dressed in a lemony vinaigrette, and more, depending on the day. Picture whatever entrée you've ordered glistening in the center. Picture a plate of injera ready to help you shovel food into your face until you're ready to split. When you're looking at a plate like this, hungry and lost in the moment, you just might think that in fact you are looking at the best Ethiopian food served in Dallas.

Grab some injera and dive in.

I've asked the same question of customers at Lalibela, just up the road, and Ibex just down Greenville Avenue. I've asked at Desta and other restaurants, too. The answer has always been the same, which made me start to wonder if it's not about any one address or kitchen, but rather the cuisine and tradition. The best Ethiopian restaurant is whatever one you're in. And Sheba's is one of the best places to start.

"Both will warm your insides in ways Texas chili cannot." Setting a high bar and serious challenge. In many bars they could be construed as fightin' words.
