Horn of Africa is named after the region in Northeast Africa whose cooking traditions inspire the restaurant. Owner-Chefs Khalida and Mohamed serve authentic dishes from the cuisines of Ethiopia, Somalia, Djibouti and the Middle East.
The menu features food hand-made from fresh, local ingredients and prepared using traditional methods. Every dish is made to order with love and pride. Dishes change to reflect seasonal availability, with many organic ingredients. Many dishes are vegan or vegetarian.
Horn of Africa began in 1994 as a booth at downtown Portland's Saturday Market. After garnering rave reviews from press and patrons, the restaurant opened soon thereafter. Both Mohamed and Khalida have returned to their native Africa to master the flavors of the dishes made by their friends, family and neighbors. These are the recipes that several generations would work together on for a special event. In their traditional settings, just one of the dishes served at Horn of Africa could be an all-day affair.
Mohamed and Khalida welcome you to Horn of Africa and invite you to discover the fresh, bright flavors and healthful food of a remarkable part of Africa.
