It's strange, but travelling by car over 5 weeks around the western US states I have never tried Indian food. Hmm... I had to do it in Mitsitam native foods cafe in the National Museum of the American Indian in DC.
Mitsitam (mit-se-TOM) means "let's eat" in the language of the Delaware and Piscataway peoples. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the museum behind the check-up and metal detectors, so you must first pass through them. The restaurant with nice view through the glass wall to the Native habitat offers entrees and snacks reflecting the native eating traditions of all the Americas and surprisingly it's not expensive. Well, it's rather busy fast food style restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Urszula had delicious sandwich: smoked turkey on wild rice bread with cranberry relish.
I had quahog clam chowder from the Northern Woodlands which tasted good although it's not my favourite seafood. Well, I ordered it by coincidence because of mysterious name. Haha, I still don't know what's quahog is. Do you know?
