ABYSSINIA Ethiopian restaurant, Kensington

I really wanna keep this Ethiopian restaurant going. The last three went under just as we were getting into them and this one is the best Ethiopian restaurant Jozi’s seen so far, so I hope she keeps it alive.

I enjoy the coffee ceremony at least once or twice a week at home, as my wife is Ethiopian. The home brewed beer is called “Tala” and is an acquired taste…I love it to bits, but you may prefer their honey based brew called “Tetch” which is sweetish and also has a bit more sting in it, but watch your knees, it can be known to really almost disable them temporarily.

    @Stef, check out the Contact tab for all relevant details. Ethiopian food, on the most part, is very much a selection of very tasty purees, served on a giant pancake. Great for pensioners…haha. You tear off bits of the pancake and grab the puree with your hands…so forget the manicure. Abyssinia is the genuine article. Everyone that works there is from the corner of Africa that Mussolini tried, in vain, to once conquer.
