After two successful years spent as a pop-up restaurant and Smorgasburg vendor, Bunna Cafe is finally getting more permanent digs: a brick-and-mortar restaurant at 1084 Flushing Avenue. While Ethiopian food is far from a novel concept, Bunna Cafe will serve a completely vegan menu, the first of its kind in the city. Inspired by the cuisine served during the three fasting months required by the the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, you can expect to dig into flavor-packed, vegetable-heavy plates like gomen (steamed kale with carrots, ginger, and garlic) and misir wot (red lentils cooked with a spicy berbere sauce), alongside plenty of injera — a spongy sourdough flatbread. Bunna Cafe, the first part of which translates to coffee in Amharic, will also offer a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, live music, and soon, glasses of an Ethiopian honey-wine known as Tej.
