Vegan Ethiopian (+ Carnivorous) Dinner with Helina Melaku of Konjo Me Frame & FRAMEbar > , > Vegan Ethiopian (+ Carnivorous) Dinner with Helina Melaku of Konjo Me

Mark your calendars, as we wait patiently for Helena Melako to return from her trip to Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia. She’s there now tasting and testing recipes that have been honed through generations for her next up Frame dinner. Helina’s veg-forward menus defy convention and offer quite possibly the purest expression of this most exciting age-old cooking technique. With wafts of berbere, turmeric, ginger and garlic; Helina’s classic meat dishes are wonderful, but the vegan dishes here steal the show.

Served with rolls of her crave-worthy porous spongy injera (a sourdough-risen flatbread resembling pancakes made from a fermented grain called teff flour) this is the heart of the Ethiopian table. Meaning we skip the fork and knife, as this is the best way to soak up the juices and experience Ethiopian culture in all its bright deliciousness.

Add in Frame’s lounge-y, intimate atmosphere and this exotic love letter will widen the eyes of Ethiopian fans. And entice the appetites of culinary newcomers alike.

Evocative, Totally Unique and Unfailingly Delicious With a
Carnivorous and Vegan Menu to satisfy every Frame Guest.
Objectively a Treat for All. Alas, you can have your plant-based cake and eat it too !
