Ethiopian food is spicy and hot – but not hot! This may seem like a contradiction but Ethiopian food is a unique cuisine with spices that emphasise flavour and not heat – unlike Indian or Thai food, it does not burn and is not an endurance test. Like most national cuisines, Ethiopian food varies from region to region, although Ethiopia Down Under has its origins in the Tigray region. Come and enjoy traditional Ethiopian bread, Injera, with your meal and taste the lemony flavours from the overnight fermentation of the mixture. Why not have an Ethiopian coffee whilst you’re there? Ethiopia claims to be the birthplace of coffee, and here it is prepared and spiced in the traditional way & served from a traditional coffee pot. Unlike Italian or Turkish coffee, Ethiopian coffee is neither bitter nor thick. It is a smooth, pleasant taste, sweet to the palette and their Sidamo coffee is lower in caffeine than most coffees & teas!
