Hey peeps. Kassa, the owner of Ethiopian restaurant Little Addis (in Maboneng), has agreed to chat to us a little about the Ethiopian coffee ceremony (while you get to taste said delicious coffee).
We'll also enjoy a nice lunch there. Some info on Ethiopian cuisine: "Ethiopian cuisine characteristically consists of vegetable and often very spicy meat dishes, usually in the form of wat (also w'et orwot), a thick stew, served atop injera, a large sourdough flatbread, which is about 50 centimeters in diameter and made out of fermented teff flour. Ethiopians eat exclusively with their right hands, using pieces of injera to pick up bites of entrées and side dishes. Utensils are rarely used with Ethiopian cuisine."
You're looking at about R100-R150 in total here but it depends what you decide to have. The meals are very well priced and the coffee is about R15-R20. They also serve traditional spiced tea. They don't serve alcohol but craft beers can be bought at the Bioscope's Chalkboard a few doors up, if you're keen.
