Minneapolis Chowhound needs Ethiopian Recs
My husband and I will be in DC over Memorial Day weekend, which happens to coincide with his birthday. Ethiopian is one of his favorite cuisines and I've heard DC has some of the best in the country. Where is a "not to miss." Since this is a birthday dinner, we're open on price.
I second Ethiopic. It is our current favorite and we've been dozens of times - consistently good!
Their beet salad (key sir) is my absolute favorite!

Get the "fuul" which is basically boiled and mashed fava beans that takes on an oatmeal like texture, but with a very earthy taste. It's served topped with chopped veggies and your choice of number of eggs (1 or 2). That, along with inerja and I've got enough carbs and protein to last me an entire day ... all for less than $10.

Homemade flatbread cut in pieces and mixed with berbere (Chili paste and spiced butter)
Baked foul, beans seasoned and served with onions, Jalapenos, olive oil, sour cream, and chili paste

EGGS WITH BEEF
Scrambled eggs with chopped beef cooked with onions and Jalapenos and served over injera

Because it is a bakery, they also have a nice selection of Italian pastries and expresso.
