Seattle Weekly's Description

Squeamishness about raw food is perfectly understandable. Most Seattleites have gotten past that when it comes to tuna or egg yolks (thank you, Japan), but now it's time to let raw beef push you the rest of the way. Saba's Gored Gored comprises tender, uncooked beef cubes covered in awaze, a red chile sauce. The combination of heat, sweet, and raw meat juices (aka "blood") explodes on your tongue, pushing away all thought of mad cow. By the end you'll just be grateful for the injera, the pancake-like bread served with Ethiopian cuisine, to sop up anything left on your plate. That said, if you just can't bring yourself to put chunks of raw cow in your mouth, Saba's menu is filled with flavor-filled cooked lamb, lentils, and more.

    Go for vegetarian dishes!

    As authentic can be! If you like spicy, this is your spot! And they even roast their own Ethiopian-style coffee.

  • Alp B. on 03/12/13

    They don't have forks but food is cool.

    One of the best Ethiopian restaurants in Seattle. Must try Doro Wat.
