The Però Restaurant is as rich and diverse as the East African culture. It can be said that the spectrum of cuisine at Però Restaurant lies between two extremes: vegetarianism and carnivores. The essence of East African cuisine revolves around the appropriate use of aromatic spices. The skill lies in the subtle mixing of a variety of spices to enhance the basic taste of a particular dish rather than overwhelming it.

Però is based on the spices in which it is cooked, just like Japanese sushi is based on the freshness of the meat and Chinese is based on the different sauces to give the right and taste. It is interesting to see how an East African cook works with a range of spices and sprinkles these powders in exactly one pinch free of charge into the bowl in front of him. It is these complexities of regional food in East Africa that make it a fascinating experience.

At Però Restaurant & Lounge we would like to offer the most traditional dishes from all corners of East Africa, maintain the classic Eritrean recipes and expand the menu with some typical dishes to meet the changing trends in modern Africa. We will be happy to prepare a dish that is not on the menu if time permits.

Visit us from Friday to for entertainment – call us for more information.
