I honestly love the “community” atmosphere I’ve seen at every Somali restaurant I’ve been to. You never actually know who works here and who just hangs out and drinks coffee and orders food and pays for it some other time. I saw at least 10 different people go back into the kitchen and help themselves to coffee during the time we were there. And it’s completely normal – I love it. The server came back to our table and made sure we were happy with our food, which we were. And, we were both sweating from the heat in the food and the heat in the restaurant. I’d go back here again. I’m anxious to get the Soor. Maybe it’s a weekend only dish. It must happen!
I did some reading on the eating culture of the Somali people and I found out that if a female comes to eat at the restaurant, it is encouraged that the female cover her chest and legs as much as possible so as not to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Just a courtesy to their culture. I'm sure they wouldn't ask you to leave, but why ruffle feathers if you don't have to?
Thanks, Sambusa King.
