Eating is a social activity in Ethiopia. Everyone eats with his right hand of an injera. This fermented pancake is an Ethiopian specialty. Tear off a piece of an injera with your fingers, grab a vegetable, fish or meat and eat this up. Melkam megeb! “Enjoy your meal!” in Amharic.


The meat that we use, is halal and comes from an Islamic butcher’s shop.
