Last week, I had a chance to eat at Mitsitam Café at the National Museum of the American Indian. I’ve been once before and loved it so I was excited to eat there again.
The restaurant is set up cafeteria-style, and you go around to the different stations to get your food. We arrived around 3pm, and all of the stations were closed except one.
This did not matter at all. We ordered the buffalo chili with fry bread, pulled buffalo sandwich with squash, and a chicken taco. We also grabbed a couple beers.
There are plenty of places to sit, and we were able to sit right by the waterfall.
The buffalo chili was amazing. It’s got a nice kick and has plenty of meat. We also bought fry bread to dip into the chili. The bread was also extremely tasty.
The pulled buffalo sandwich was also really delicious. It comes on a bun with squash served on the side. I put the squash on my sandwich and it went together perfectly.
We also got the chicken taco, which was served on a piece of fry bread. This was my least favorite of the three things we tried, but it was still pretty good. I would have preferred it to come in a hard shell instead of the fry bread which is better suited for dipping into the chili.
The prices here are a little high, but the food is amazing and I can’t wait to go back when more stations are open.
