I've been craving Ethiopian food ever since my friend took me to Habesha. I'd never had Ethiopian food before, so she coached me on how to eat it (no silverware, you use your hands.) Even though I'm not vegetarian, I ordered the vegetarian option, and was thrilled! We each ordered a different dish, and I ordered a salad to share. I'm glad I did! It was all so delicious, but some of it was a little bit spicy for me, so the salad helped with the heat of the seasonings (no 1-5 star scale, here.) It was so good, and the servings are generous, so there was enough for 2, plus leftovers for 1. Overall, this had to have been one of the most enjoyable new eating experiences ever. The casual nature of eating with your hands makes for a great ice-breaker; I'd recommend Habesha for a first date, or a casual meal with friends. Also, try the iced coffee. Dee-lishus.
Pros: Food, Atmosphere
Cons: None (don't remember if there was parking, it was within a short walk of Capitol Hill.)
