In the spirit of maintaining a positive image in the Black community, we have decided to designate the first two weeks in October to acknowledge Black owned restaurants in Arizona. This is the first year that we have done this and will continue this for years to come.
We want to share with you the businesses that are thriving in our community or they're just starting out and need our support. To start us off, we present to you Cafe Desta.
Cafe Desta has been proudly serving traditional Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine since 2010. Located south of Downtown Tucson, Cafe Desta offers traditional vegan dish options and meat dishes incorporating chicken, lamb, and fish. All of their meals are served with injera, a spongy bread made from teff, sorghum and wheat flour that is used like a tortilla to scoop food up from the plate.
If you are in the area, be sure to give them a try.
