The Scoop: There are many Ethiopian restaurants in Silver Spring but Abol is the only one that we know of to have a professional chef running the show. Owner T. Mamo graduated in 2008 from the Washington Arts Institute in Culinary Arts. She explains that the food at Abol focuses more on the whole flavor of each dish instead of the intense spiciness of many other Ethiopian spots. The word Abol means "authentic" in Ethiopian which seems appropriate as Chef T. notes that people from Ethiopia are always thanking her for having the only authentic food in the area. We recommend one of the combination platters (meat or vegetarian) on your first visit so you can enjoy a variety of flavors. The lamb or beef tibs are also great if you are looking for a fantastically spiced take on grilled food.

Service and Vibe: Fast and attentive service with casual vibe

Price and Portion: Generous portions at reasonable prices

Best For: meal with friends, casual dinner, spice lovers or perfectly grilled tibs with Ethiopian beer
