Tutu’s Ethopian Table, the restaurant in the Global Café at RISC on London Street, will open a new branch at the Palmer Park lodge in the new year. The restaurant’s proprietor Tutu Melaku said that her existing restaurant at the Global Café will remain open.

Tutu Melaku said:

I am thrilled that Reading Borough Council is giving me this opportunity to expand my Ethiopian Table to this wonderful new location in Palmer Park Café. I look forward to welcoming my new and old customers to my beautiful new venue, where I will offer my Ethiopian cuisine, as well hot drinks and snacks.

The Palmer Park lodge had been occupied by the Chalkboard Café, which closed in 2017.
