Lucy’s Story Over forty years ago, in the Ethiopian town of Hadar, scientists discovered Lucy, a fossil that forever changed our understanding of human evolution. The discovery of Lucy provided the missing link in our evolutionary spectrum, and proof that we all, in some way, originate from Africa. The archaeological team who made the discovery celebrated that night by drinking lots of wine, dancing and playing the famous Beatles song ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ all night long. Her Amharic name ‘Dinkinesh’ means ‘you are marvelous’. Here at Lucy, we hope to create a magical night for you too, and to share the food, warmth and rich culture of majestic Ethiopia with you.

ABOUT Taste a Country Born in Nazret, Ethiopia, Shita Yenenh knew she wanted to own a restaurant from a young age. Culturally, a mother’s recipes were passed down generationally. Shita lost both parents while still very young, so she learned the art of cooking by remaking the recipes she tasted while at other people’s homes. When she moved to the United States with her daughters years later, she worked a few jobs before finally opening Zagol. “When people come to my restaurant, they will get real food.” Because of her unique exposure to multiple family recipes and styles, Zagol’s menu offers a wide range of flavor. As the sole chef and owner of the restaurant, Shita describes her cooking style as “…real. It’s real food, made with real love, and passion. I don’t stress about how much of something to put in. I make everything from scratch, by hand. When people come to my restaurant, they will get real food.” Her favorite dish to serve to her guests is Zilzil Tibs, a savory dish of seasoned beef and sweet onions. Clouds of steam parade the dish from the kitchen, and it is still sizzling from the fire. “When I bring […]

Welcome to Al Habasha Restaurantﾠ-ﾠfirst Ethiopian Restaurant in Dubai You will indeed love Africa proclaimed an Ethiopian Airlines poster on the yellow-washed wall at Ethio al Habasha. Beside it another poster, flushed with the heart-warming image of a rich, dark Ethipian stew, read “Eat today, diet tomorrow”. All wise words, i though, as I tore off a billowing flap of injera bread, plunged it into the meaty brown gravy of the alitcha menchet and lashed it greedily into mouth. Tomorrow never comes, after all. Once our eyes had adjusted to the muted light in this modestly proportioned Ethiopian restaurant, we were able to focus on a calamity of color. A patriotic assembly of red, gold and green cushions was laid out neatly along the back all beyond a row of mesob, or traditional basket tables, surrounded by bamboo seats. Opposite, there were low stools of carved dark wood with plump leather cushions resting on animal pelt floor coverings. For the conventionally inclined, there were also four glass-top tables and chairs in the window corner. Everything basket radiantly under a ceiling painted light blue and white like a cloud-skimmed sky. It was an extraordinary place to eat extraordinary food. A broad […]

Welcome! Most everyone loves to travel. It’s exciting to see new places and experience the different customs, entertainment and foods of other cultures. Many people may not get the chance to travel because of time constraints or other obligations, but they are still able to sample other cultures through food. Imagine a trip to an ancient country, shrouded in mystery, a country that most Americans don’t know too much about today. It is a country of lush mountain highlands and arid lowlands with a rich cultural and religious history that maintains many of its customs to this day. The country is Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee, home to some of the best Olympic runners in the world and the place believed by many to be the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. Observing the Julian calendar, Ethiopia boasts 13 months of sunshine. The rainy season may come, but the sun still shines in an unmistakable sense of hospitality and sharing from its people. Ethiopian food is uncomplicated and healthy, but no single adjective can adequately describe how absolutely delicious it is. Most dishes begin with a bread, as in many cultures, but not in loaf form. Injera […]

PREPARING FOOD FOR A GLOBAL PALATE SINCE 1993 Welcome to Zemam’s, Tucson’s first Ethiopian restaurant. Dining with us is a unique experience, as Ethiopian food is eaten communally from a shared plate using the traditional bread, injera, as your utensil. Featuring a variety of dishes including vegan and gluten free options, Zemam’s has long been a staple of the Tucson global gastronomic experience. The Founder: Amanuel Gebremariam Amanuel fled his homeland over 40 years ago and found safety in the United States as a refugee with nothing in his pocket. Once he and his family settled in Tucson, Amanuel decided to share the unique tastes he remembered his mother preparing for her family back home. He opened the original Zemam’s in 1993 in a small house on Broadway with just five tables. Tucson immediately embraced the small establishment and soon Zemam’s became a well known destination for diners looking for a different experience. In 2014, Amanuel purchased the old Garland restaurant and opened a second restaurant, Zemam’s, too!. His sons have since joined him in the business and together they see a future with more to come.

OUR HISTORY Fendika Cultural Center was established in 2016, but the original Fendika Azmari Bet opened its door in the early 1990s, when the neighborhood of Kazanchis sported 25 similar places. While the other azmari bets disappeared due to the pressure of Addis Ababa’s rapid development, Fendika has survived until today thanks to Melaku’s passion for Ethiopian music and dance, his belief in the power of art and creativity in building communities, enthusiastic attendance of concerts and events by local and international friends, and many other forms of support we have been blessed with (fundraising, invitations to music festivals, press coverage, etc.). When Melaku began managing Fendika Azmari Bet in 2008, he pioneered a system where musicians and dancers at Fendika receive monthly salaries, breaking away from the custom where they only earned tips. Melaku had danced for tips only for 12 years and knows the pain of having to dance to please customers. The new compensation system enables artists to focus on creative expressions and to develop their talent. Since 2009, Ethiocolor Traditional Band has been performing at Fendika Azmari Bet every other Friday, drawing standing-room-only crowds. At the same time, Fendika touring group has been sharing Ethiopian music […]

Ethiopians eat a number of breakfast porridges. There’s Bula, made from powdered Enset, which is definitely an acquired taste; and the more conventional Kinche, made with cracked wheat. But the tastiest, as well as the easiest to prepare, is Genfo, a simple wheat or barley porridge made spicy with berbere and rich with niter kibbeh. So, if you want a filling breakfast, try some Genfo. This recipe is enough for two portions.

Keep stirring until the mixture is well moistened. Remove from heat, mold the Genfo into the shape of a bowl, and hollow out a hole in the middle (see photo). If you’re using Niter Kibbeh, melt the butter, then mix the butter (or oil if you’re not using butter) with the berbere. Finally, pour the spicy liquid into the hole you’ve hollowed out in the Genfo, and eat it by the spoonful, dipping each scoop into the liquid center. You can dress up the dish by putting a ring […]
