Grab a bite at some of the most famous restaurants of the country that serve mouth-watering vegan, beef and fish dishes. Also, take a sip of the honey wine served at Tej Bets and witness a traditional ceremony before your dinner at Judah Abyssinia restaurant.

DAY 01

Ethiopian culinary tour

  • Meet your Ethiopian tour guide, who will give you a quick orientation and explanation of the stops.

  • First, visit either Merkato or Shola market to see which spices, ingredients and cereals are used to prepare traditional Ethiopian dishes.

  • Afterwards, visit a popular local restaurant known for its Shiro Wot and Ethiopian vegan food. 

  • Proceed to a meat house where you will enjoy the most fantastic beef served either raw or fried with some great sauces and wash it all down with a 'turbo' before continuing on our way. 

  • Receive a plate of fried fish and learn about the main fishing areas of the country. 

  • Have some beer before moving next door to a local coffee house. 

  • Finally, head inside Tej Bets where you taste an intense honey wine.

  • Get involved in the preparation of Ethiopian food (i.e. baking of enjera and traditional coffee ceremony at a local home). Still, if you are taking this activity, you will have to skip going to one of the restaurants.

  • If your program is inclusive of dinner, get a chance to see the traditional dancing ceremony at Judah Abyssinia restaurant near the airport before your Addis Ababa food tour ends.

Note:

As we walk through the neighbourhoods, your guide will share information about Addis Ababa and the history and culture of the country
