The Scoop: Addis Ababa owner Dagmawi is proud to say that “our food is as close to Ethiopia as it’s going to get.” Even though we’ve never had the pleasure of visiting Ethiopia to confirm, we trust in the 30 plus years of history serving the Silver Spring community and the delicious food as evidence that this place is something special. The first floor is an inviting dining room which gives you the feeling you might really be in Ethiopia’s capitol city and the restaurant’s namesake, Addis Ababa. The second floor is a hookah lounge which started in summer 2014 and has been growing in popularity ever since. Dagmawi explains that the secret to making his food so good is importing all of the spices directly from Ethiopia. We recommend the Yebeg Wat (non-spicy lamb stew) and the Doro Wat (spicy chicken stew) as the must try items. The veggie combo is also great with a wide range of beets, cabbage and collard greens served on the slightly sour and spongy injera bread.

Service and Vibe: Friendly service throughout. Comfy and colorful dining area on the first floor and laid back hookah lounge on the second floor.

Price and Portion: Reasonable prices and generous portions
