With Flúðir being one of the largest green-house areas in Iceland, the access to vegetarian ingredients has to be the bes
t. Even when serving the traditional Ethiopian chicken and beef dishes, the plates are loaded with very fresh vegetables.
The owners of Minilik, Flúðir are Árni Hannesson and Aseb Kahssay and the restaurant was opened in June 2011. It has proved to be quite popular, especially with tourists and the locals are catching on, warming to this exotic and wonderful food with locally grown vegetables and imported Ethiopian herbs and spices.
