Ethiopian food has come back to Tampa. The space is one of those Bermuda Triangle sites that has seen the demise of a number of restaurant ventures. Queen of Sheba will stick, though, on the basis of its huge family-style platters of spiced legume or meat stews called wats, chicken drumsticks and hard-boiled eggs. A spice called berbere amps up the heat level on a couple of the beef and chicken dishes, but for the most part stews are mild. Vegetarians have loads of choices, and vegan dishes are marked with a "V." Though there's no dessert, a postprandial coffee - thick, rich and Ethiopian - is a must.
