It's a freezing January day in London, and I'm on the hunt for a soul warming working day lunch.
Ethiopian Flavours at Borough Market comes to mind and I can't think of anything more suited. This is the 3rd time I've had it, and prior to this brilliant little market joint, I had no idea what Ethiopian food consisted of. And now I'm addicted.
I can't get past ordering the beef every time. £4.50 for a medium box serving with prime steak is ridiculous value for money and is served with 2 veggie sides plus rice or bread.
The smell just wafts through the whole of borough market. Hmmmmm
Value for money and so tasty!
6 veg sides to choose from, one was being refilled when I took this pic. The veggie selection changes every time I am here, but cabbage is a must in my lunchbox

Watch out for the steam!
Ethiopian beef is a cross between a stew and a curry. It has a thick stew consistency with lots of spices and teeny hints of curry, and is mainly savoury tasting which I love. The steak is so tender, yet retains it's muscley bite. My sides of cabbage is simple and plain, and does of great job of reigning in the spicy kick from the chilli daal. Rice underneath.
I love Borough Market. (Previous Borough Market Eats)
Have you guys tried Ethiopian food before and do you have any other recommendations? I'd love to know.
