Cuisine at Addis in Cape
Ethiopian cuisine is renowned for its delicious aromas and lavish use of herbs and spices. The country was historically located on trading routes that included the trade of many exotic spices. This background has set the stage for the tastes of Ethiopian food as we know it today. Many of the herbs and spices are blended and prepared in the home with great love and attention, as are those used in Addis in Cape. The dishes that we share with you are all from Ethiopia and prepared by two remarkable Ethiopian chefs.

Our presentation is breathtaking. Uniquely served in a magnificent woven basket-like table called a Mesob. The dishes you request are served together on a large plate, layered with a pancake-like sourdough base called Injera. Using your hands and Injera you scoop the various flavoursome stews and sauces. This stunning array of food is eaten in a communal celebration of life.
