If you're looking to break away from the usual fare that appears on every Melbourne corner, Little Africa is well worth a look in. The authentic African cuisine at this North Melbourne joint hits you hard in the tastebuds — think Ethiopian stews, curries, flatbread and more, all served up in a cosy and bright space. Vegetarian? Don't fret. In fact, come hungry. Try the tumtummo (stewed split lentils in a seasoned sauce) or the fool (fava beans mashed with ghee and chilli). There's also a pretty rad vegetarian combination — $20 for one person, or $35 for two, which is really all you need to know because that's a great deal. Wash it all down with your traditional Ethiopian coffee, served with or without ginger. Little Africa offers BYO.
