OC Weekly's Description

If the restaurant looks like a banquet hall-fake roses in vases,
bright-red mantles, napkins folded like fans and carefully placed inside
glass cups, business cards handed out just as you sit down—because
owner Habiba Abdi has a catering business of the same name, and old habits
die hard. Abdi's suqaars—sautéed chicken or beef on beds of cardamom-spiked
rice—are the type of food that makes you eat so much that you're likely to
stretch something inside that shouldn't be stretched. The sambusas are
really samosas, but bigger, flakier and accompanied by a fragrant
green-pepper chutney that scalds. Baked in-house is the bur, Somali fry
bread as sweet as pan dulce and as savory as a French roll—tear it open to
stuff in whatever's in front of you, or use it for sopping.

Tips from foursquare

  • John O. on 07/09/13

    Service is leisurely as the same woman cooking for you is also probably waiting on you, but it's worth it.

  • Munch On Me on 04/19/11

    Gendershe Cuisine puts an East African twist on a classic summer-opener by adding a perfect blend of sweet cinnamon and spicy ginger.

  • Munch On Me on 04/19/11

    The Sambusa is made with a harmonious blend of beef, vegetables, and spices all wrapped in a crispy, flaky shell that is sure to entertain all corners of your mouth.
