Those with a taste for adventure will love Made in Africa, a charming restaurant offering a taste of African cuisine, specialising in dishes from Ethiopia. Brisbane may feel like a million miles away from Africa, but Moorooka’s Made in Africa brings the spirit of the country straight to its Beaudesert Road location with its warm hospitality, traditional decor and authentic cuisine. Start off by trying some sambusa (a pastry shell filled with meat or vegetables) before moving on to a soul soothing stew like the alicha wot (beef sauteed in onion and turmeric) or another traditional dish like the yedoro fefer (dry pieces of injera and dry chicken with onion, green chilli, berbere and herbed butter). Vegetarians will find an abundance of choices too like the shiro, a split pea stew.
Very good range of meats and vegetarian dishes with differing degrees of spiciest. The service was friendly and the atmosphere pleasant. Highly recommended. Platter is good value for groups.
Friendly service. We had a tasting platter and there was more food than we could eat. Very basic decor - could be made more appealing.
Food was great, very traditional, authentic flavours! The freshly roasted coffee was fantastic! Once the musician got started there was more of an atmosphere, the music was Ethiopian style.
