Now MSP diners, tell me what you think the best of these is.
EDIT: Whoops! I should have used search. I didn't know this has been covered so many times! Well, let's go at it again :)
I'm not going to tell you - you'll steal the place and take it to Duluth! :-)
Actually, I hear that Fasika is really great. It's on my list of places to try.
Blue Nile is eh (as of my last visit several years ago). Queen of Sheba (one visit for lunch, two years ago) was good. Haven't tried the others. I need to get out more.
I've been to Blue Nile, Dashen, and Fasika. I like Fasika the best, although I'd like to try Blue Nile again for the sake of comparison. I haven't been there in several years. I'd also like to try Queen of Sheeba - I've heard good things about it.
I can't tell you anything from my own experience, but my Ethiopian coworkers tell me Fasika is the must-try place.
