Washington, DC
The DC Area is known for having a swath of Ethiopian restaurants, so it’s only natural that a burger joint with Ethiopian influences is quickly becoming one of the city’s favorite burgers. At Melange, chef Elias Taddesse takes his Ethiopian heritage and French culinary training and mixes the influences together for a killer set of burgers and fried chicken sandwiches. The classic burger comes on a buttery bun with a triple-blend patty, pickled red onions, and a hefty spread of brown butter aioli, while the fried chicken sandwiches are doused in berbere spices and dressed up like the spicy Doro Wat dish, both favorites at Ethiopian restaurants around the city.
