    The Little Ethiopia Food Tour was specially designed for the adventurous eater. Some of the restaurants we visit are ‘hole in the wall’ spots, that focus on the quality and authenticity of the food, rather than the particular ambience of the restaurant. All of the restaurants were built and maintained through hard work and perseverance that resonates the pride of a people that have faced adversity yet managed to succeed. We will traverse through the center of Ethiopian life in Washington DC, located in the heart of the historic U Street and Shaw Neighborhoods. The 19th century neighborhood houses some of the area's very best and most authentic Ethiopian restaurants. Your Food Tour may include the following specialties: • Traditional breakfast • The Ethiopian National dish • Deep fried lentil appetizers • Fresh cottage cheese • Homeade breads • Coffee ceremony • Traditional meat and vegetable dishes • Hand Made hot sauces and spice blends • Italian influenced Desserts

Chris was a superb guide. He has a wealth of information about Ethiopian cuisine and DC. Even though I was familiar with Ethiopian food, I learned a lot from this tour. And, I found some new Ethiopian restaurants that I will definitely return to for dinner. This is this tour
