Fodor's Expert Review Chercher Ethiopian Restaurant

$ U Street Corridor Ethiopian
In Shaw, a neighborhood known for its traditional Ethiopian food, this celebrated spot offers both authentic flavor and great prices. Named for the West Hararghe zone of Ethiopia, the restaurant celebrates the traditional cuisine that is eaten mostly utensil-free, using a special spongy bread, injera, to scoop up food that's laid out on a large platter. There are also great vegan options here for those that don’t want the traditional Ethiopian sirloin or chicken stew. And you'd be hard-pressed to find most of the choices from a great list of African beers elsewhere in the District.
