The flavor of this dish was very good. The berbere spice mix packs a wollop, but still gives you wonderful flavor and a lingering heat. I did feel it was lacking a little depth, maybe a squeeze of lemon or some vinegar. Or maybe some fresh herbs at the end. All in all, a very good dish that has the potential to be something really special.
