Malden Reads Community Dinner- The Ethiopian Restaurant
7:00 PM
Ethiopian Restaurant
Have you ever tasted Ethiopian food? Well, if not, now's your chance! And if you’re already a fan, please come and share your enthusiasm and companionship with other Malden Reads participants.

Community Dinners at local restaurants are a tradition for the One City, One Book program, now in its tenth year. They are a chance to meet other community members, share a delicious meal, and support a local business, all while engaging in informal discussions related to the topics of this year’s book selection, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. You do not need to have read the book to attend. General “Table Talk” questions will be provided.

Ethiopian food is well flavored with a mixture of different spices and herbs, including chili powder, fenugreek, ginger, garlic, cardamom, and cinnamon. Community Dinner attendees will be treated to a buffet including both mild and spicy meat, legume, and vegetable dishes, an Ethiopian salad, and as a special treat, Ethiopian coffee service. The meal is accompanied by injera, a traditional Ethiopian bread (made with teff flour, not wheat) that is used in lieu of utensils to scoop the food for eating. The meal selections accommodate most diets including vegan and gluten-free. Beer and wine (including traditional Ethiopian types) are available for purchase.

The restaurant is located in the shopping plaza near Donut Villa on Highland Ave and there is plenty of free parking.

The cost is $20 per person including tax and tip. All beverages besides coffee are an additional cost. Meal payment and reservations can only be made in advance through Eventbrite.com (COMING SOON).
