Swahili Village in Dupont Circle brings East and West Africa together over a scrumptious spread of food. The restaurant is a popular gathering spot for the who's who of Black DC. It's a great pick for birthday dinners and first dates since the restaurant boasts an assortment of seating options including spacious private rooms, and a roped-off balcony that works great for guests looking for something more intimate. The menu fuses classic African dishes and ingredients like jollof rice, sweet plantain, and goat stew to create a menu that’ll have you doing the Birdman hand rub while you wait. Our favorite dishes include the suya, grilled and charred beef cubes served with freshly diced onions and tomatoes. And the beef samosas come in a flaky filo dough with a sweet but fiery dipping sauce.
