Eden Gebre Egziabher owns and operates Makina Cafe, the first and only Eritrean and Ethiopian food truck in New York City. Driven by her passion for the foods she ate as a child growing up in Addis Ababa, Eden serves Eritrean and Ethiopian staples like injera bread, chicken and beef tibs, misir (spicy red lentils), tikel gomen (cabbage with carrots and potatoes), gomen (collard greens), and sambusas, which are similar to samosas. Eden, born and raised in Ethiopia from parents of Eritrean descent, aims to use Makina Cafe to celebrate her two countries of origin and their cuisines.
