Silver Spring’s Beteseb (8201 Georgia Avenue) was named an “Essential Ethiopian Restaurant Around DC” according to a new list by food and restaurant website, Eater. Though there are dozens of Ethiopian restaurants in the county, many of which are very popular locally, Beteseb was the only MoCo restaurant included on the list
“Silver Spring has no shortage of good Ethiopian food, but Beteseb distinguishes itself with food bursting with flavor and spice. The injera is made entirely from teff grain, unlike many American-adapted injera that incorporate wheat flour. It’s open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Friday to Sunday. Try the breakfast firfir combo (scrambled eggs, seasoned cracked wheat, spiced bread) or buttery bula porridge.”
