Shashamene, 1909 9th Street NW, Washington, DC, 202-328-2223 , where Abiti used to be.
A new entry for the 9th Street Ethiopian row. The menu is narrower than most but quality is above average and the vegetarian sampler is especially noteworthy. If you are vegetarian and opting for the sampler, this may be your #1 bet in town. Not a palace but it has a “nicer” atmosphere than many of the other places in the area. First-rate kitfo as well.

    I had the vegetarian combo and doro wat here (spicy chicken in berbere sauce) and it was quite excellent. The chicken was served with a very delicious ricotta-like cheese that complemented the spiciness well. Far less crowded than Dukem or Etete!
