Indulge Your Taste Buds With Hearty Ethiopian Cuisine

The times when it was rare to see authentic Italian pasta or a typical Spanish paella on the table are long gone. Do you want to surprise your friends or family with a truly original dish? These days, you have to come up with something completely different. What about Ethiopian cuisine? At Abyssinia in Mechelen, you will find a wide variety of authentic Ethiopian dishes to make your mouth water. From spicy Ethiopian stews with chicken, lamb or beef to delicious healthy vegetable dishes and a spicy fish dish; we have it all at Abyssinia.

Are you planning a communion or wedding party soon? A buffet from this East African country is an excellent choice. The enormous variety of starters, side dishes and main courses will delight all your guests. We also rent out catering equipment for family parties or small events.

Ethiopian Cooking in Your Own Kitchen

Are you creative in the kitchen and would like to prepare an Ethiopian meal yourself? We offer a wide range of Ethiopian ingredients in Mechelen. Feel free to contact us for information or advice.

Order from Abyssinia

All our dishes are homemade with fresh ingredients. We therefor ask that if you want to have takeaway on a day that the restaurant is closed, you place your order one day in advance by e-mail or telephone. By appointment, you can pick up your order at our location in Mechelen, or we can deliver it to your home (free of charge for orders of €120 and more). If you wish to have takeaway on days that the restaurant is open you don't need to order in advance. 


Leen De bolle

A unique experience: we recently went there for dinner with friends. They absolutely wanted to go there. For me, it mattered as long as it was pleasant dining. And it was. The days after, however, I constantly felt like going there again. These flavours are so special. They haunt you and don't let you go!
