What You'll Get
Adding gourmet ingredients to a meal makes a commonplace activity feel special, much like brushing your teeth with a sparkler or withdrawing money from an ATM while holding it at gunpoint. Add flavorful flair to your dining with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Ethiopian fare at Addis Ababa Restaurant, located in Silver Spring.
For more than a quarter-century, Addis Ababa has delighted epicurean taste buds with rich, authentic Ethiopian cuisine. Toast the completion of a rigorous Thumb War reenactment with a crispy triangular sambusa appetizer, available with beef ($2.50) or lentil ($2.25) fillings, before perusing the menu's reams of rich entrees. Sink teeth into the lega t'ibs with sautéed beef, onions and peppers ($11.20), or tackle the more adventurous gored gored, with chunks of raw beef seasoned with butter, mitmita, and pepper ($11.50). Other entrees employ fresh lamb, shrimp, and tuna, while a suite of vegetarian options such as the cabbage-rich tikil gomen ($9.10) or garlicky, split-lentil mesir wat ($9.10) sing winsome four-part harmonies to herbivorous palates. Liquid Ethiopian flavors include the Sidamo coffee ceremony ($21 for groups of three or more), as well as honey and gudar wines ($6.50 per glass) and Harrar beer ($5.50). With the kitchen and dining room open late most nights, peckish night owls can stop in for a unique after-hours tête-à-tête or chance run-in with Edward Hopper. During warmer months, diners enjoy these flavorful, finger-friendly foods atop the restaurant's rooftop patio.
- This restaurant has very generous portions of really top quality food. – Chowhound
- We loved the spongy injera bread used for wrapping up the very peppery doro wat, or chicken stew, and the yebeg tibs, a luscious lamb stew with an undercurrent of heat. You'll also find a fine display of vegetarian dishes including stewed greens and spiced lentils. – Gayot
