Horn of Africa

For years, food was the only connection Mohamed Yousef had to his home country of Ethiopia. He fled during the civil wars of the 1980s, landing in a Sudanese refugee camp before moving to Cairo on a UN scholarship. It was there he met and married his wife, Khadija, who stayed behind to work as a chef when Mohamed relocated to the United States to pursue a career in business. Once he had enough money to send for Khadija, they decided to combine their business and culinary talents by setting up a food stand at Portland's Saturday Market in 1994.

Horn of Africa's food was a hit—so much so, in fact, that by 2007 Mohamed and Khadija opened a brick-and-mortar restaurant. The Zagat-rated spot is beloved by locals, who rave that the cuisine "will change your life." The couple draws inspiration from Ethiopian, Somalian, Djiboutian, and Middle Eastern flavors, serving a menu that includes everything from wild salmon marinated in Zanzibar spices to flax-seed stew with seasonal vegetables. Multiple tastes can be combined into platters, complete with bideena flatbread to scoop up savory bites.

Customer Reviews

It's probably better to enjoy this wonderful food at the Portland Saturday Market; on the weekends, rather then at their restaurant in the evening after they've had an already exhausting day cooking at the market for the pleasure of so many others all day. Food was wonderful! We already look forward to enjoying it again soon. Next time though, my wife and I will enjoy, not only Horn of Africa's great food, but the Saturday Market too.

The lamb and salmon were both delicious. The proprietors are very personable and we had a lovely evening. We will go back! We look forward to trying some of their other dishes
