Ethiopian vegan restaurant opens

Reda’s Ethiopian Vegan Cuisine, a delivery-only restaurant in San Diego, opened Feb. 12.

Founded by a family of Ethiopian immigrants who fled famine in 1984 for a refugee camp in Sudan, Reda’s uses traditional family recipes that have been handed down for generations. The menu includes sambusa, shiro, hamli, dinch and carrot, miser wot, kik alicha wot and mushroom tibs.

Because of ongoing war in Ethiopia, Reda’s co-owner Rosa Adam said that 7 percent of all profits will go toward hunger efforts there.

The original plan for Reda’s was to open as a brick-and-mortar store, but because of the pandemic, Adam said they’re now operating as a “ghost kitchen” concept from a commercial kitchen in central San Diego.

Reda’s offer deliveries through DoorDash and GrubHub and also offers curbside pickup. Visit
