Ethiopian Gastronomy in Madrid
The Ethiopian gastronomy consists of several starters and vegetable or meat dishes, usually a stew, served on top of injera, a thin elongated bread; a kind of crèpe made with a cereal called teff and cultivated in Ethiopia, after the dough is left to ferment for 3 days and then put in a flat, round clay dish about 40 cm in diameter previously heated to fire (usually firewood), served with various stews over meat or vegetables and using the hand to help with the injera, to be able to take the food.

 The traditional Ethiopian cuisine does not use pork of any kind, since Islam and the Ethiopian Orthodox Church forbid eating that meat.

In our restaurants, the food is prepared with natural products imported from Ethiopia, accompanying all our injera dishes. The injera is used as a base on which the food is placed and pieces are torn by hand with which food portions are taken, so that cutlery is not used (but, if you prefer, they are at your disposal). The injera is also suitable for celiacs.

 We have a wide variety of starters, vegetarian food, lamb dishes, veal and chicken, and desserts. We also have children's menu and grilled meat dishes.

And finally, we offer you tej, handmade honey wine; being this honey wine, also called mead, possibly the first alcoholic beverage consumed by man.

In ancient times, there was a tradition that newly married couples would take mead during a lunar cycle after the wedding to get a male child. That is the origin of the «Honeymoon».

Ethiopia, formerly known as Abyssinia or Alta Æthiopía, is a country located in the Horn of Africa. 
Unique among African countries, Ethiopia has never been colonized. 
 It is also the oldest nation in the world to adopt Christianity as the official religion and was the first kingdom to adopt Christianity. 
In addition, Ethiopia was one of the original 51 members of the United Nations. Its capital and largest and most populated city is Addis Ababa. 
The name Ethiopia is derived from the Greek Αἰθιοπία Æthiopia, coming from Αἰθίοψ Æthiops 'Ethiopian' which in Greek would mean a burned face (αιθ- burned ὄψ face).

 The coffee ceremony is an essential part of Ethiopian social and cultural life.
It is, for us, an honor to offer our clients and friends the celebration of this centennial ritual.

The entire coffee preparation cycle is performed before you in a ceremonial way. In a corner of the restaurant, a young woman, dressed in a traditional Ethiopian dress, toasts the green coffee beans in a flat metal dish on a small stove.

The aroma of freshly roasted coffee invades the premises. Once roasted, the coffee is ground by hand. Then it is introduced, with water, into a special jar called jebena, which is placed on the fire until it boils. The shape of the container, narrow neck and spherical base, and the skill of the preparer prevent the grounds from mixing with the infusion. The coffee is served in small porcelain cups also following a ritual. It must be done carefully so that no grounds fall.

If you do not know Ethiopian cuisine, don´t worry. In our restaurants we have some special tasting menus where you can try different food preparations representative of Ethiopian cuisine.
We recommend you try it.
