Flamingo Restaurant, an eatery that serves traditional East African fare, specifically Ethiopian, Eritrean, and Somali, in St. Paul’s Midway, recently underwent new ownership.
The restaurant, which originally opened in 2006, is now under the guidance of East African women’s activist and community leaders, Shegitu Kebede and Frewoini Haile.
“Fre and I are very excited about entering the restaurant business,” said Kebede. “It’s truly our passion...we love serving people. We also need to become self-sufficient so that we can make a difference in our lives as well as the lives of others, especially East African women. Running a successful business can get us to this goal.”
