Ethiopian gem on the back streets of Deira

Time Out Says

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010
Finding this dimly lit Ethiopian eatery among the back streets of Deira can be quite an ordeal – but it’s worth it. Most patrons are Ethiopian and Sudanese – a sure-fire sign that the grub is authentic – and they will happily tell you how to eat the food (put it this way: cutlery is not the name of the game). You’ll be glad you’ve made your new friends, as navigating the one-page menu, which has few descriptions, is not easy. Opt for injera with tebs (crepe with grilled beef and chillies) and there’ll easily be enough for two. The injera is a massive, sponge-like beast; tear off hunks, using it to sweep up the ingredients and, despite slightly tough meat, the unique mixture of sour and spice will have you coming back for a repeat helping.
