Founded by Ayesha Abraham, Mama Ayesha's opened for business in 1960. They’re a family owned and operated restaurant serving authentic Arabic cuisine. With dishes prepared daily from scratch you can be sure you're getting the closest thing to home cooking in the District. They’ll be moving forward into our 5th decade of serving the Washington, DC area, and have built a reputation as one of this Capitol City’s most authentic culinary locales.
The Displaced Kitchen #eatkomeeda series is a campaign aimed to bring together people to hear a perspective of a recently resettled refugee. We feature a refugee to share their story over a feast! Our "Chef-ugee" hosts left various conflict zones for safety, and have resettled since. All of whom experienced the hardships of survival, and the hardship of acclimating into our society, the Displaced Kitchens is aimed to bridge the gap through food by providing them an outlet to share their journey, and their cuisine with our Kommunity.
