Spiciest Ethiopian dishes?

Kenzi | Oct 3, 201107:46 PM

I'm travelling to DC this weekend and have staked out a bunch of Ethiopian places I want to try (based on my searches here), but I'm travelling/dining with someone who requires high levels of spiciness. I want him to have a really good impression of Ethiopian food (we're in NYC and it's good but I don't think it impressed him) and thus the hotter the better. (yes, I know he's missing the subtleties of cuisine but I can't change that about him!)

Can anyone recommend the spiciest Ethiopian dishes? Is there a condiment which is usually added but has to be asked for specifically?

Just an aside, based on suggestions here I'm going try to go to at least one of the following: Etete, Dukem, Ethiopic, Zenebech. Can you recommend one of these that is more likely to have the spiciest?
