Great DC Dining In Little Ethiopia

on August 16, 2013

Dukem

You already know that the President lives in Washington. What you might not know is that the nation’s capital is also home to the largest population of Ethiopians in the U.S.

The result is that DC now has some of the best Ethiopian food around NW, U Street and 9th street, transforming the area into a “Little Ethiopia” as it is affectionately known.

One of our top recommendations is Dukem (1114-1118 U Street, Washington DC), one of the older restaurants in the city. Dukem is primarily known for its outdoor seating and the different versions of kitfo it serves. Kitfo is a spiced raw minced beef.

Another option is Axum (1934 9th Street, Washington DC).

If you’re for some great DC dining and a taste of Africa, Washington is certainly where you want to be.
