African in Fitzroy, Collingwood & Abbotsford

Straight outta Addis Ababa, the flavours and feel of this Ethiopian restaurant are as authentic as its homemade injera (soft bread; prepared fresh daily). Tear it into your meal using your fingers and wash it down with Ethiopian beer. There's jazz on Thursday evening, and on Sunday the eight-piece Black Jesus Experiment plays traditional Ethiopian music with a modern take.

Call ahead if you'd like to request arranging a coffee ceremony.
