Hungry hunters on the lookout for delicious, uniquely-flavoured fare make a move to the matchless Mu’Ooz and delight in the tempting tastes of North-East Africa. Dating duos, groups of three, famished foursomes or parties of five foraging for a fantastic feed step into the cosy, atmospheric surrounds adorned with African gems. After being welcomed by the friendly staff and relishing the wafting aromas of alluring spices, feasters embark upon a flavourful journey to the Horn of Africa with a shared platter. The portions served depends on the number of partaking pals – up to three dishes for two people, up to four dishes for three, up to five for four and up to six satiating dishes for five people. Patrons can select from nearly all the mains on the menu, with voracity vanquished by vegetarian dishes like pumpkin sautéed in herberé, onion, tomato, garlic and ginger, and mouth-watering meat mains like chicken or beef spicy curry with chilli spice, onion, tomato, garlic and tasame. All dishes are served with an enjera, the flat, pancake-like sourdough bread that is the national dish in Ethiopia and Eritrea.
Mu’ooz means “tasty and healthy” in Tigrinya, the language of Eritrea and parts of Ethiopia, and this restaurant certainly lives up to its name. Opening its doors in 2008, the community-funded restaurant provides employment for women refugees arriving to Brisbane from Africa and raises funds for their local community. The team also works to improve cross-cultural understanding and assist with breaking down barriers.
