Reda's is a San Diego based ghost kitchen providing authentic Ethiopian vegan cuisine. Reda translated means "Hope"; this was our grandfather's name.Our core values are “Flavorful Taste, High Quality Ingredients & Creating Cherished Moments”. Our recipes have been passed down from mother to daughter through the generations. Being first-generation raised out of San Diego, CA; we wanted to create something that would get our whole family involved, as well be able to build our legacy.
Our family traveled to Sudan on foot in 1984 to escape the famine in Ethiopia. We have always had an intrinsic relationship with food. Whether it was facing food insecurity and having to create dishes like Shiro (consider the poor man’s meal) or celebrating life by absenting from meat, dairy, cheese and eggs for up to 55 days at a time; for holidays such as Fasika (lent).
With so many days of the year fasting, Ethiopia has been practicing veganism before it was even a thing. Our plan is to feed your soul and body through providing high quality dishes by using only the best ingredients and cooking from scratch. Our dishes are not only tasty they pack an excellent level of protein and fiber, plus have high levels of important minerals such as iron, folate, phosphorous, and zinc, as well as B vitamins.
We are looking forward to making you apart of our habesha family and feeding your soul and body.
