skeptical first timer - Dukem, Etete, or Ethiopic?

I would also recommend Ethiopic. Especially for a first-timer, I find the service at Ethiopic to be great. So if you have a question about the food or are looking for recommendations, they should be able to help. I don't know how big a group you will be, but I like to get one of the vegetarian samplers and then one or two individual meat dishes depending on the size of my group.

Best Mapo tofu in greater DC area?

I went to Joe's Noodle House last weekend and realized it's actually the first place I ever had mapo (it was when I first moved to DC so I was still very unfamiliar with the area). Maybe it's because it was my first, but I agree that it is some of the best I've had. I'll definitely be back any time I have errands to run in the area.

I'm also really excited to try Great Wall and Sichuan Pavilion in DC. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Best Mapo tofu in greater DC area?

Where in the greater DMV is the best mapo? I don't own a car, so I'm usually restricted to only mero-accessible places. But this weekend I will have a car and would like to try the best! Any suggestions?
