You know you’re not in Spain anymore when you go into the African restaurant Hanan: the staff looks different, the restaurant smells different and the music belongs to somewhere far away from Madrid.
When you read the menu, unless you’ve traveled to Ethiopia or other countries near it, you realize that you have no idea what you are going to eat. Sure you will recognize words like ‘chicken’ or ‘lamb’ but not ‘injera’, ‘mitmita’ or ‘berbere’.
The main course arrives to the table all together in a big wicker basket called ‘mesob’, they open the lid , and you should eat with your hands if you want to experience the whole foodie adventure.
You have to try ‘tej’ during the meal, their fermented wine with honey, or Ethiopian beers; and you should end the meal with the coffee ceremony (you will have to tell the restaurant in advance when you make the reservation).
