MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Restaurant exteriors don’t get much more unassuming than this terrific café’s façade. And though the name, Awash, is printed clear as day on the brick outside, the barred entrance never really looks open. Having said that, grab a pal when dining here (these dishes are meant to be shared) and take a leap of faith—you won’t regret it. Just as the eponymous river is vital to those that live near its banks, this restaurant is an absolute standout for those craving authentic Ethiopian food. Vegans will rejoice at the vegetable-laden menu, while carnivores will delight in such savory entrées as the raw, minced beef kitfo tossed with spiced, melted butter; or the meaty tibs (a hearty stewed preparation) that can be scooped up with torn pieces of tangy injera.
