Tasty eats followed by relaxed bevs and billiards with friends.

While Melburnians are quite proud of our diverse cuisine offerings, Ethiopian food is severely underrepresented throughout the city. Footscray, however, champions this distinctive cuisine at casual dining restaurants, including Addis Abeba, Awash and Abesha. After a meal of injera (flatbread), azifa (green lentil salad) and sambusa (fried pastry often filled with meat), wash it all down with a beer at The Reverence Hotel. At this Footscray institution, local beers like Two Birds and Coopers & Stone are championed, providing the perfect lubrication for one of their weekly gigs, or a laidback night with friends over a round of billiards.
