Venue Info

Behind this unassuming, convenience store-reminiscent storefront on El Cajon Boulevard is some of San Diego's most authentic Ethiopian cuisine. Part market, part restaurant, Awash serves spicy stews, vegetables, and meats -- all with spongy, teff-based injera. The fronting market sells house-baked injera, bagged and ready to-go, along with other hard-to-find African imports.
