Vegetarian, organic flair

Downtown Birmingham continues to offer a variety of worldwide cuisines. Right by Grabbagreen, diners will get to enjoy Ethiopian fare, with the entry of Taste of Ethiopia at 183 N. Old Woodward, in the former New Bangkok Thai Bistro location. This will be Taste of Ethiopia’s second location, joining its Southfield one on Northwestern Highway. Owner Hiyah Gebreyohannes said the natural, organic and often vegetarian food is very healthy. “My earliest memories are forever linked to the contents of my childhood lunchbox – my mom’s aromatic home-cooked Ethiopian dishes. These lunchbox memories inspired my dream to bring the wonderful flavors of the Ethiopian culture to be enjoyed by everyone,” she said. “Handmade in small batches with all-natural ingredients and authentic spices, Taste of Ethiopia marries tradition with healthy eating.” Gebreyohannes offers antibiotic free and organic chicken, stews, spicy lentils, all hormone free and non-GMO.
