Liyu Yirdaw draws culinary creativity from everywhere. After moving to the United States from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, she studied western cooking at culinary school and began mixing cross-cultural flavors and spices. Today, you’ll find her serving up a fast-casual take on Ethiopian-American food at her restaurant, WUHA. On the menu, you’ll find traditional Ethiopian dishes like injera and spicy lentils, but the fan favorite is her Ethiopian take on a classic roast beef sandwich — yum! WUHA is one of eight immigrant owned business that are part of the Spice Bridge collaborative.

Fun fact: WUHA means water in Amharic, the national language of Ethiopia! Liyu wants everyone who tastes her food to be ‘unable to live without it’ just like water!
