“Denver is mad for Ethiopian food” Denver Post. Ethiopian food may still be a niche cuisine across the globe, but that is not the case for the Mile High city. With over 22 Ethiopian restaurants in the metro area, Ethiopian cuisine is no longer just a hidden gem for foodies.
A legacy of the second largest immigrant population in Colorado, Ethiopian food with its rich, spicy stews and diversity of flavors, surely qualifies as one of Denver’s greatest stand-alone cuisines. Slow cooked, healthy and delicious meals made with love and intention.
Leave the knife and fork behind, eat with your hands for a sensuous, intimate, mindful meal. There are no pretentions, every person eats in the way that feels most comfortable. It is often customary to feed one another, an experience called “Gursha.” When you stop focusing on etiquette and rigor, the emphasis instead goes to nourishment and conversation.
From the delicious and super-satisfying meat dishes, to the hearty vegetarian, vegan, gluten and lactose-free dishes, there is something for every diet and preference. And from the birth place of Coffee, you will experience the Ethiopian communal coffee ceremony.
The Taste of Ethiopia is not just about food or coffee. It’s the whole experience. Culture, live music, dancing, traditional clothing fashion shows, arts, crafts and wholesome family friendly fun. We invite you to join us on this adventure, for our 4th annual fest. Bring your friends and family. Admission is always free.
