This sun-yellow Ethiopian spot in Shaw—also on our list of 100 Very Best Restaurants—recently got a spiffy Bethesda sibling. (The place took over a mod-American bistro and changed nary a succulent.) At both places, the kitchen puts out vegan platters that taste almost Technicolor: String beans and carrots are so exuberantly flavorful, it’s hard to recognize them. Still, we never leave without an order of kitfo, chopped raw beef seasoned with mitmita (chili powder) and crumbles of house-made cheese. Also good: Mama’s special dumpling; green-onion pancake; Beijing soy-sauce noodles.
