Made in Africa restaurant located in Brisbane’s south east suburbs.
Up until now, to experience the traditions of Ethiopia, you would have to spend 26 hours or more on two or three planes to get to Addis Ababa for truly authentic Ethiopian hospitality. But now, thanks to Tesfaye and the team at “Made in Africa”, you can have a truly authentic Ethiopian experience right here in Brisbane.
About ‘Made In Africa’
Undoubtedly, you will discover the warm hospitality of Tesfaye’s family. You and your friends dine on an extensive selection of traditional Ethiopian meat as well as vegetarian “Wats” ( stews) and “Tibs” (Warm meat with salad). All served with Ethiopia’s traditional flat, sour-dough bread called “Injera” around a traditional Ethiopian “Mesob” (a round, brightly colored, woven, wicker table).
Hand washing is an important part of the authentic experience at Made in Africa. Your host or hostess will ensure that your meal begins with the traditional hand wash.
You’ll be especially pleased about that hand washing tradition when you learn about “Goorsha”. Normally you break a piece of Injera and roll it in the Wat and put it in your own mouth. But sometimes you may tear a piece off, roll it in the Wat and place it in you friends mouth! Of course the bigger the Gorsha the greater the friendship!
In fact, Ethiopia is the home of the coffee bean and the Ethiopian people really know their coffee! You are not going to want to miss your host roasting the beans, grinding them and then brewing the coffee right in front of you before serving you and your friends delicious coffee from a clay “Jebena”.
By the end of the night you will have a full belly. Also, you will have a much greater understanding of the traditions, hospitality and generosity of Ethiopia and the Ethiopian people.
