At Maaza 29 we've set out to create an intellectually provocative cuisine, one that is clear of ethiopian dining stereotypes but celebrates the vibrant applications of ethiopian herbs and spices to european cuisine. This concept is based on a deep historical cross-flow and culinary influences of italy, france and turkey and by extension india and the middle east. We believe in all-natural ingredients, in food made from scratch and the old way of doing things. no hormones, no preservatives, no cutting-corners, no compromises. just really delicious food, prepared to order, with ingredients sourced locally. nothing out of a can, box or frozen. just fresh. our goal is to offer a cuisine that is assertive and memorable. we seek to celebrate our cuisine in an upscale sensual ambiance.
