Washington, D.C. is known for its large populations of Ethiopian, Vietnamese and El Salvadorian immigrants, who’ve brought their exotic cuisine to the US capital. Here’s our guide to the best ethnic cuisines in Washington, D.C.
Zenebech Injera is a budget-friendly Ethiopian delight. Rave reviews about the family-style platters and vegetarian dishes make this a must-try. You’ll find succulent Mehaberawi (chicken leg) and traditional tibs dishes and doro wat. Watch out for their veggie combo, vegetarian platters and fluffy injera bread. They also offer a list of Ethiopian beers and a handful of cheap domestic brews and imports. The small restaurant isn’t much as far as ambiance goes, but the authentic dishes and service make up for it.
