“Taste of Ethiopia” will hold its grand opening in El Cerrito on Friday, May 15th from 1-3 p.m. During the grand opening, guests will enjoy menu tastings, live Ethiopian jazz and other traditional Ethiopian surprises.
Proud owner, Tsege Tamene, is fulfilling a culinary dream of bringing traditional Ethiopian cuisine to her community. “Our food, like our culture, is very colorful”, Tamene shares. “I am excited to share a place that embraces my culture to the fullest.”
She got help getting started from Kitchen@812, a nonprofit that cultivates East Bay food-preneurs.
Tamene is excited for her guests to taste the “Ethiopian way of cooking” – a blend of spices, no artificial flavors and deliciously healthy options for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.
Taste of Ethiopia located at 11740 San Pablo Avenue, #B, El Cerrito, 94530. To rsvp or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (510) 778-1905.
