Why Mumbo Sauce Is the Key to D.C.'s Subculture | Food Grails

3:23 PM


Welcome to Food Grails, First We Feast traveling food and culture series hosted by Miss Info. As a music journalist, she's travelled the world and seen the power of artists who rep for their hometown sound. Now, she wants to discover how foods define a city’s flavor—from Atlanta's lemon-pepper wings, to NYC's beef patties. These are America’s food grails.

In episode 3, Miss Info heads to Washington D.C. to find out about the city's regional specialty, mumbo sauce. Whether you like yours dark-red or orange, tangy or peppery, mumbo is at the core of D.C.'s subculture. But as the city undergoes gentrification, will mumbo sauce retain its vitality? We spoke to Wale, Shy Glizzy, Kokayi, and Tony Lewis Jr. to find out what the future holds for the city's special sauce.
