Habesha is a family business established in 2013 by Yidnekachew Fantu and his wife, head chef Selam Abebe. Habesha is a term Ethiopians and Eritreans use to refer to themselves. Habesha is a term of pride and used to eliminate the distinction between different tribes and celebrate unity as people of the same region. Ethiopian cuisine is traditionally served on a large, thin, sourdough pancake called injera. Injera is a fermented, yeast-risen flatbread with a unique, slightly spongy texture, made from teff. The traditional way of eating is with fingers, from a large plate with the injera placed on the plate and the variety of dishes decoratively arranged around it. Sharing food from a common plate signifies a bond of loyalty and friendship.
