Ethiopian in Silver Spring

  • c

Does anyone know of a good Ethiopian restaurant in Silver Spring/Wheaton? I am familiar with those down in Adams Morgan and Georgetown but the burbs seem to be lacking. Any hints?

  1. Recently reviewed in The Post Weekend (sorry, I don't have the link) I believe it's on Georgia Ave.
    I haven't been myself, but it's casual & not expensive.
    I've only been to Red Sea (poor service!) and Meskerem (better!)
    Most Ethiopian restaurants around here seem to be in Adams Morgan...

      It's on Georgia at the corner of Thayer, which is a few
      blocks south of the intersection of Colesville and
      It's definitely adequate. I don't have much recent
      basis for comparison - it is very close to me and good
      enough that it's been quite a while since I wanted to
      brave the whole schlepp to Adams-Morgan (equally a
      pain either by car or metro). So I'm no longer sure
      what I might be missing, you know?
      They don't have honey wine. The evil county liquor
      laws apparently make it impractical.
      There is also a building on Fenton that has had a sign forquite a while saying that an Ethiopian restaurant was going to open there, and some renovations were definitely being made to the building, but no more than
      that yet.
