Awash is my favorite Ethiopian restaurant. If you have never had Ethiopian food here is what to expect. The food is not served on individual plates but a large platter for the whole table. The food is placed on injera, which is a spongy, pancakey type bread. There are no utensils, you rip off a piece of injera and use it to pick up the food. (After you order your food, they bring you warm wet clothes to clean your hands before your food is brought out) While most of the food does not look particularly appetizing, it is all very delicious! I also highly recommend the honey run blackberry honey wine. It is delicious! My experience here was great, and the servers are more than willing to describe in more detail menu items or to guide your through ordering if you are new to Ethiopian food. I cannot wait to return!

I never had African food before. Lucky for me I live in a city as diverse as NYC. After going to AWASH, I felt cultured. Not only is it a different food, you wont need silver ware to enjoy it.
