Slow Home Cooked Prepared Meal Vs Fast-food

Kaffa Coffee and Wine Bar prides itself on meals made from scratch.  Its not that we do not prepare meat for the day, nor have readymade portions of berbere, injera, and other common spices.  Yet each meal we start from scratch, from the time you order (or when bustling, from the time the cook gets your order).



This is not unlike the Ethiopian culture itself.  Meals are communal periods, where coffee or wine is indulged while the food is prepared.  It does change the culture of American Dining just a Tad.  Now, if you are used to hitting up a steak house during a busy period, your meal might come out after a half hour.  And. there is a reason Mexican restaurants serve chips and salsa, maybe multiple times, during lunch and dinner times.  Other restaurants can become backed up, even with multiple cooks, servers, and other staff.



Healthy organic food needs to be prepped from scratch. We do not have massive frozen burgers and buns, multiple cooks doing the same thing as if on a construction line, nor single pans and grills used for the same food repeatedly.  We do not have milkshake machines, or quick soda fountains.  However, is the food at McDonald's, Burger King, even Starbucks, any better for being faster?



We can prepare an espresso, coffee drink using organic ingredients as fast as any bistro, though we work with a much smaller staff.  We do not keep refrigerated sandwiches for microwaving upon order.  We do not keep prepackaged vegetables (fries, potato patties, etc) ready to zap or fry, and we don't keep meals under a warming light for the quick serve.



All the above can make for a speedy meal.  But I can guarantee, its not healthy.  How many restaurants have had citations to food under heating lamps not kept at room temperature?  And how many can say the food tastes so good, because it was prepared right then, just as if you had cooked at home?  That is the difference between eating in an Ethiopian Restaurant, and ordering fast food.  And stated earlier, even sit down restaurants with pre prepared food (think the micro waved meal in a Mexican Restaurant, watch out for the plate) run with meal serving time from thirty minutes to an hour.  We offer the same serving time with much healthier results.



Disclaimer: we do offer our clients some choices, since they requested the stock.  We do offer chips, muffins, juices that are pre packaged.  But there are some treats, like cookies and samosas. that are pre packaged and healthier alternatives.  Moreover, we carry bottled water.

Conclusion:  in a hurry?  Call ahead with your order.  You can either pick it up, or sit and dine.  (CheckOut our Menu) Hope to see you soon!

  8. This brought about Venice becoming exceptionally rich amid this period. The greater part of the flavors that were traded to these districts originated from Asian manors. Today, flavor exchange is similarly as fruitful with Indian merchants sending out flavors to different nations around the globe. restaurant listings

  10. The bean is also brewed for religious meditation purposes. Coffee comes from berry producing trees found in the Middle East. The berry itself looks a lot like a very small cherry, red and enticing. Jill Scott

  11. I've often wondered if this extra energy comes at a price. As a kid, I always heard that it would stunt my growth. And, as an adult, I often hear that it can lead to high blood pressure and even strokes. Coffee
