African Taste

A long walk and the lunchtime munchies led to this pleasant little discovery in Seddon. African Taste, a non-pretentious little cafe serving just what the name suggests. Having had no previous experience of African food (well perhaps non-north African) this was a very well received introduction.

The cafe itself is a fresh looking small homely affair with whitewashed walls and seating for around 20 at peak. This time around we were greeted by the cook herself, beaming a smile while tending to her two small children. Menu's quickly changed hands, an order of Molokia (a Sudanese lamb and spinach dish) and Gomenne Be Ayeb (Ethiopian spinach ricotta with pita bread) were placed and the cook got to work.

What arrived to the table was a surprise, lovely presentation worthy of many an overpriced restaurant but here the outcome of a confident cook proud of her work. The taste matched up, a wonderful mix of fresh herbs and spices made the Molokia a very filling yet fresh tasting dish while the Gomenne Be Ayab was rich with a nice spicy kick. Service was welcoming, pleasant and attentive all at a reasonable price.
One for the recommendation list.


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
