A Taste of Ethiopia in San Francisco

One of the most wonderful things about San Francisco is that you can sample cuisines from literally all over the world. If you have an open mind, and a taste for adventure, you’ll find these foodie outings rather fascinating and even enlightening, in a way that a hamburger or a slice of pizza — no matter how good — could simply never be.

With this in mind, we’d like to introduce you to Tadu Ethiopian Kitchen. The restaurant now has two locations, one in the Tenderloin and one in Mission Bay, and its dishes generate rave reviews.

The meals they serve are going to look unfamiliar. There’s no silverware. What’s more, the owners feel compelled to include a glossary on their website to help familiarize you with the dishes they serve. Nevertheless, we think you’re going to love it.

One final note. Hill & Co. Senior Vice President Eileen Mougeot is a board member of the non-profit organization, Ethiopian Village Schools. The group builds classrooms and libraries in rural Ethiopia. She’s been to that country many times. It is an arduous journey, a terribly long flight followed by bumpy rides through the back country. You can see why an Uber ride to Tadu in SF is so appealing.

Visit one of the two Tadu locations. And if you’d like more information on Ethiopian Village Schools, or to make a donation, please click here.
