The menu’s beef sambusa pastries ($4.50) set the stage for red lentils in a spicy red sauce ($9.50), tender chicken breast cooked in garlic and rosemary ($12), and dry-fried lamb with onion, green pepper, and special seasoning ($13).
Eden Major learned to cook from the women in her family, traditionalists who baked injera bread from self-rising wheat flour and seasoned lentils and meats according to centuries-old recipes. The aromas of these same meals flood Major Restaurant's cheerfully painted dining room, as Eden brings out elegantly arranged platters of tender meat tibs and the flavorful watt stews lauded by reporters from Nuvo and Metromix Indianapolis. Diners gather around traditional ethiopian woven baskets, scooping up dishes with the spongy injera flatbread and refilling glasses of ethiopian honey wine. Once her guests are through with dinner, Eden performs a traditional coffee ceremony, pairing clay pots of freshly roasted dark coffee with sides of sugar, popcorn, and incense.
The restaurant's interior is as colorful as its cuisine, full of vivid african artwork and bright strings of lights. A long wall mural depicts relaxing scenes, including a sunset over a mountain and the serendipitous invention of the first coffee smell.
