About this business
From Our Editors
Growing up in a small town in Ethiopia, Eskender Aseged lived in the only household in the neighborhood with a radio. The pop songs and soccer matches that fizzled through those speakers brought families together to laugh and listen. After moving to San Francisco, where every car on the road blares its radio, Aseged turned toward cooking in order to bring that sense of community and wonderment to his new neighborhood.
Radio Africa & Kitchen grew from a home-based, popup eatery into a full-blown restaurant, where Aseged is free to experiment with Ethiopian and Mediterranean flavors. He makes use of the freshest ingredients he can get his hands on, coming up with a brand-new menu and costumed mascot on a weekly basis. His bold cooking and rousing personal story have captured the attention of publications such as the San Francisco Chronicle Magazine and the New York Times.
