Traditional Ethiopian and East African cuisine packed with savory, fresh spices

“Buraka”, the name of the owner’s great-grandfather, means joy and contentment in the Oromo language – which is exactly what you will find at Buraka restaurant.

Their lunch and dinner meals are East African and Ethiopian. Ethiopian cuisine is best known for their rich and exotic mix of spices, such as berbere, garlic, cardamom, ginger, cumin, coriander, curry powder, and many more. These spices give each of Buraka’s dishes their unique flavor and rich aroma characteristic of authentic, home-style recipes.

Ethiopian cuisine is also known for a particular, flat sourdough bread called “injera”, which is made from a grain called teff, native to Ethiopia. Buraka’s dinners are savory stews served over your choice of rice or injera, served with a side of lettuce salad. Gluten-free injera is available upon request.
