Teff-Riffic Ethiopian Business in Lansing  

Rahel Musa is the owner and operator of her family business Teff-Riffic. Teff-Riffic is an Ethiopian food stand inside the Allen Market Place consisting of healthy vegan and vegetarian dishes.

Teff, a tiny gluten-free whole grain that is a nutritional powerhouse is Musa’s signature ingredient as she preps her Ethiopian dishes and creates her teff flour. Musa’s native country Eritrea, located just north of Ethiopia, is well known for growing teff and has been a staple  of traditional Ethiopian cooking for thousands of years.  Musa is bringing that tradition to Lansing.
