This experience was the first time eating at Addis Ababa. Very Cultural experience, interesting, wait staff nice and informative. Table (coffee style, adjacent to wall) was a bit low for the chairs provided and therefore not good positioning for those with back problems. In general seating not very comfortable, food was flavorful.

About This Deal
Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Ethiopian fare and drink at Addis Ababa Restaurant in Silver Spring.
Addis Ababa Restaurant regales diners with a menu of specialty dishes culled from the culinary traditions of Ethiopia. The delicate seasoning of zilzil tibs—marinated beef strips sautéed with zesty onions, garlic, and jalapeño ($13)—can refresh senses deadened by a long day at the gorgonzola factory, while the yatakilt wat recruits an ensemble cast of carrots, potatoes, and string beans to perform a meat-free veggie kick line across the plate ($9.10). For the doro wat, chefs slather and cook curried chicken in seasoned butter, garlic, and ginger before pairing it with protein-rich boiled eggs ($10.75). Alternately, test Pythagorean culinary theorems on sambusas, triangular pastry crusts stuffed with savory spiced beef ($2.50) or lentils ($2.25).
Addis Ababa Restaurant fuels late-night noshing with operating hours that stretch past midnight seven days a week. Patrons can lounge on two levels of indoor dining, or take to the rooftop patio to breathe in fresh breezes or argue about which cloud looks most like Franklin Pierce.
