Mitsitam Cafe

Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian

Washington, D.C.

The Mitsitam Cafe is inside the National Museum of the American Indian. It has several different stations from regions of the Americas with corresponding dishes for each. F, A and I were hungry after exploring all of the exhibits, so we popped in for lunch. It was quite difficult deciding what to eat, with so many interesting options, but I finally settled on 1) wild mushroom and corn bread pudding and 2) salt fish, hearts of palm and chickpea salad. A and F chose the buffalo chili and fry bread. My favorite was the wild mushroom and corn bread pudding - it is the extremely unattractive gray blob in the picture above but it was so full of mushroom flavor, and had crispy bits where the corn bread pudding had been roasted well. Everything else was nice as well, but I will remember that mushroom corn bread pudding for a while.
