A restaurant meal is incomplete without its after-dinner mint, which cleanses the palate before patrons gnaw a subterranean tunnel home. Chew the scenery with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Ethiopian fare at Abol Ethiopian Cuisine in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Lauded by Examiner.com for its authentic eats and courteous service, Abol Ethiopian Cuisine's Ethiopian-born owners mete out authentic dishes with an emphasis on vegetarian options. The menu draws eyes to an exclusively garden-based section that includes oven-baked chickpeas simmered in a fiery berbere sauce and heaped next to a side veggie and injera ($12.50), an ethiopian flatbread, to serve as a savory scooper. The customer-beloved chicken stew ($13.95) spills into awaiting mouths, carrying the savory flavors of berbere, ginger, garlic, onion, and herbal butter. For the special kitfo or meskelu kitfo, chefs hew seasoned sirloin into slender morsels, steeping chunks in herbed butter sauce and spicy chili powder before affixing a sidecar of gomen and two homemade cheeses ($13.95). One- or two-person combos ($14.95–$29.99) allow customers to expand their culinary horizons more easily than creating a life-size mountain range from mashed potatoes.

I took my brother from out of town who had never tried ethiopian food and he was throughly impressed with both the food and the service.
Denise V. · June 24, 2012
Always good and friendly service, although one of the waitstaff doesn't understand too much English, which can cause misunderstandings of what one ordered!
