Foursquare Tips

  • The true unbeatable Ethiopian Cuisine in Washington DC - Thank you for making it a day to remember !
  • Chef Tiwaltengus Shenegelgn's doro wat, a berbere-spiced stew that includes a chicken and a hard-boiled egg, takes five or six hours to cook and begins much the same way a French onion soup does.
  • Lega Tibs......cubed pieces of marinated lamb sauted in onion, jalapeno, spiced butter = yumm-o.
  • We recommend: Sambusas; yebeg wat (lamb); doro wat (chicken and hard-boiled egg); kitfo (beef tartare); kik alicha (split peas); gomen (collards); azifa (green lentils).
  • The hottest ticket on this city's dining scene is Ethiopian food. Restaurant Etete is jam-packed with locals and Ethiopians, which always says to me it's the real deal. Samantha Brown
  • Quite possibly the best ethiopian food in the world.
  • Beef tibs + veggie
  • Worst Ethiopian food I have had in a long time. Awefuly done Kitfo not cooked to order, tasteless Tibs with hard meat to chew and friend's veggie combo also not very good. Overcrowded, poor cust srvc.
  • The Yemisir Kik Wat (spicy red lentils) are excellent here.
  • Veggie combo with fish. Do it.
  • Good for groups
  • Best Ethiopian Food
  • While many of the meats are good, the veggies are excellent. Be sure not to miss the first veggie combo on the list.
  • Pick a meat dish, order a veggie combo dish and share! my favorite Ethiopian restaurant in DC.
  • Tasty food. The entrees (other than the platters) vary wildly in size. The signature chicken and egg consisted of one chicken leg and one hard boiled egg. Waitress was incomprehensible.
  • The portions are huge, so definitely split things (or have a lot of leftovers.) Comes out to be fairly cheap, too. Did I mention it's also delicious?
  • Food is amazing!!! That said, the decor and service are terrible. Just go for a good meal, don't expext more. Try the steak tibs and avoid Harar or any other Ethiopian beer. Solid vegetarian menu.
  • Amazing veggie options---
  • I love how they serve the food and everything was tasty. service was ok...
  • My first Ethipoian restaurant. Delicious food, great experience!
