Coincidence that I sit down to write a post about food while my stomach is rumbling? Yep. In fact, perhaps it will allow me to channel my taste buds and better describe the morsels Mac and I chomped on this past September at the American Indian Museum’s Mitsitam Café in Washington, DC.
The key to someone’s heart is through their stomach, my family claims. So, in an effort to truly open our hearts (and minds) to Native culture, Mac and I sampled dishes from various tribes found around the world. The café, much like the museum itself, is set up in a spiral circle, inviting patrons to walk around the space and check out each featured group before breaking with the intended circular route and making ones way towards the cashier. A wide variety of locations are featured–from the North American Great Plains to Mesoamerica.
