Eritrean-Ethiopian street food has begun gracing the streets of New York. Makina Cafe is New York City’s first Ethiopian/Eritrean food truck. Offering both meat and vegetarian/vegan options, Makina Cafe provides a slice of Eritrean and Ethiopian culture to the city of New York while giving warm and welcoming service alongside delicious take away food. Their big yellow truck is sure is currently serving New York City east side food lovers.

 

Food truck culture in New York City is already a booming business but there are still gaps in the menu. Eden Gebre-Egziabher is capitalizing on her passion and her entrepreneurial sprit by launching the first Ethiopian/Eritrean food truck in the city. Born in Ethiopia, she came to USA as a teenager but never losing touch or a strong attachment to her culture and home cuisine. With an MBA degree behind her, she has big plans for Makina Café! She would like to branch out into franchising and have the Big Yellow Makina Café Truck on the streets of Boston, Washington DC and Los Angeles – her goal is to conquer America with Injera and Wot one bite at a time…
