When Gorsha opened its doors to DC eaters six weeks ago, its goal was simple: the entrepreneurs behind the eatery wanted to elevate the local dining scene by bringing authentic Ethiopian flair into the mix. And as foodies have caught wind of this new quick-serve spot in Union Market, Gorsha has begun to do just that.
The eatery allows you to build your own bowl of Ethiopian ingredients, beginning with a base of turmeric rice, baby kale, or torn injera bread. Then, add berbere chicken, braised lamb, or yellowfin tuna. Next, decide on veggie toppings such as mushroom hash, spinach and kale, or beets and potatoes. And finally, embellish the entire thing with flourishes like corn salsa, ginger cabbage, or parsley yogurt sauce. If you don't want to customize your bowl, Gorsha offers two signature bowls—one over rice and the other over baby kale—that come preloaded with fresh Ethiopian fixings.
