The Scoop: When you walk into Dessie Restaurant and Market, the smell of incense lets you know that this will be an authentic and worldly dining experience. Opened in 2004, Dessie has been providing the eclectic neighborhood of downtown Wheaton with Ethiopian cuisine for over a decade. A meal at Dessie is worth the trip for both Wheaton locals and visitors. The beautiful Ethiopian artwork sets the tone for a superb dining experience. Dessie has a unique bar area that is covered by a canopy. In addition to its cuisine, Dessie proudly serves Ethiopian wine and beer. Almost anyone could enjoy the cuisine offered, with many vegan and gluten-free dishes. If you call ahead, Dessie's staff will perform an Ethiopian coffee ceremony. Even in an area as culturally diverse as Wheaton, it is hard to find a restaurant that is both as culturally rich and accommodating as Dessie. The Ethiopian store that adjoins the restaurant sells injera bread, American ingredients, and Ethiopian goods. Dessie's Shiro Wot is particularly delicious. We also recommend the Doro Wot, a savory chicken stew, and both the meat and vegetable combination platters. Even in an area as culturally diverse as Wheaton, it is hard to find a restaurant that is both as culturally rich and accommodating as Dessie.
