African Restaurant Week

African Restaurant Week starts on Friday, October 19th and ends on Sunday, October 28th is an event being hosted by a variety of African restaurants to showcase and promote African businesses and culture in San Diego. Just like San Diego Restaurant Week, participating businesses from throughout the City of San Diego will create a special prix fixe menu featuring special appetizers, main courses and desserts.

To kick-off African Restaurant Week, the WorldBeat Center is hosting an extraordinary event on Friday evening. Starting at 6:30pm, the event will begin with a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony and drum call, followed by an Ethiopian beer and wine tasting, and a 'Taste of African Cuisine' from each participating restaurant. The chef at the World Beat Center will host a free African vegetarian food cooking class and the night will culminate with a fantastic array of African music. This is a party that you don't want to miss!

Throughout the week, the fun will continue. Aside from the opportunity to experience a great selection of African cuisine, various restaurants will host free cooking classes on week nights, as well as African dance and music on the weekends. The seven participating restaurants are Awash, Asmara, Fatuma, Red Sea, Flavors of East Africa, Laylah's Patties & Jerk, and Island Spice.
