Love the Messob platter to share! Also try the honey wine. It's a pretty sweet, but goes really well with the food. The people are great. There's nice outdoor seating, and everything I have had has been delicious!

From Our Editors

Part of a growing community of Ethiopian eateries in Silver Spring, according to the Gazette, Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant has served up generous portions of authentic east African fare since 2009. Goblets of traditional honey wine accompany plates of cubed lamb marinated in red-wine sauce or vegetarian dishes with lentils, cabbage, and collard greens. Guests can sop up buttery sauces with spongy sourdough injera bread, or use them to finger-paint admiring portraits of the live musicians who occasionally perform in the dining room.
