Upscale Restaurant with Vegan Ethiopian Food - Edit

The H Street Corridor is a nice area, but kind of a hipster place. Ethiopic is a little bit different from that vibe. It feels more upscale. Thus, Ethiopic is a nice restaurant if you're looking for a more polished, fancier experience.

The food is traditional Ethiopian, meaning that the vegetarian items are vegan. What can you order? An Ethiopian veg sampler for a small appetite with 4 items along with injera (sourdough teff pancake/bread): gomen (collards), miser wot (spicy red lentils), kik aletcha (mild yellow split peas), dinich wot (spicy potatoes). You can also venture to order the 7-item sampler that also has the fosolia (green beans), tikile gomen (cabbage), and shimbra asa wot (chick pea dumplings). For appetizers, you can order from 4 vegan salads: lentils in a mustard sauce, beets, tomato or chickpeas. However, if you order a sampler, you will be full before you have the second bite of your entree!

People often order to share, since there are many choices that are delicious.

However, take note that neither of the samplers offers the shiro. In addition, the prices are much steeper here than any of the Ethiopian restaurants in the U Street Corridor, and the portions are kind of small, but still filling.

Finally, you can order some gluten free injera if you're concerned about that, but it will cost you more.

Overall, a nice choice for upscale dining in the U Street Corridor, but it will cost you!

Pros: All veg items are vegan, Gluten free injera, Salads are all vegan

Cons: Price, Portion
