About the chef

First, I would like to introduce myself. I am Chef Endalk Mekonnen. I would like to cordially invite you to visit my Restaurant, NAZRET ETHIOPIAN RESTAURANT, located in the back of the shopping strip mall Build America at the Skyline shopping center. Our Restaurant serves authentic Ethiopian food. I am the owner and operator. To give you a little background about myself, I am an award-winning professional Ethiopian Chef. I graduated from Culinary arts school both here in the USA and Ethiopia. I have won numerous trophies from cooking contests. While in Ethiopia, I was the Chef at the Addis Abeba Hilton for more than ten years. During this period, I also owned and ran my own culinary arts school for several years, and I have more than six hundred graduates to my credit. Here in the USA, initially, I had my own cooking TV show on an Ethiopian TV channel for about a year before I started work as a Sous Chef then Executive Chef at Hilton Hotel in Springfield, Virginia. 


Currently, I own and operate NAZRET RESTAURANT located at 3821D South George Mason, Dr., Falls Church, VA 22041. I want to inform you with great pleasure and humility that in a very recent article, Washington Post has selected my restaurant NAZRET RESTAURANT as the third-best in their list of top ten Ethiopian Restaurants Washington area. Please came and visited us anytime and tell all your reads to experience one of the best authentic Ethiopian restaurants in the area.
