Ethiopian coffee ceremony & lunch (solid)(closed)

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.

Banking details for R40 deposit to book your spot. This R40 will go toward your bill on the day (total bill plus and then deduct the paid R40). If you cancel within 48 hours or no-show for event, you forfeit R40 booking fee.

You can also arrive a few hours beforehand and browse the Market on Main at Arts on Main, which is in the same street, a block up the road.

    Parking is quite a big problem today due to the market. You may have to park on Main Street, which runs parallel to Fox Str, one block South

    Hi guys. If I haven't heard from you regarding payment by the end of this evening, I'm going to assume you're no longer joining. Need to wrap this up and finalise numbers for Kassa. I still have a payment that was made to me with nobody's name attached so please contact me if that was you.

      This event sounds great. However, from your message from Sunday, it sounds like you may have already finalized. Is it too late to join?

    Hey peeps. I sent an email on Friday regarding a deposit payment for this event to secure your spot. Please look for that email (possibly in spam folder). I need to see who is actually coming and finalise the booking. The R40 you pay goes towards your bill (after bill is totalled and tip is added) unless you cancel within 48 hours or no-show, in which case you lose it.

    HQ says the following: If you signed up with a Gmail address, your emails may be being routed to Gmail's Social tab.

    July 7

    • Peter M.

      I have turned off Gmail's tabs long ago (i.e. gone back to the original flat view), so that's not the cause in my case.

      July 7

  • dael
