Today a marvelous Sunday lunch at this Ethiopian restaurant in our new neighborhood of Silver Spring...only five minutes by foot from Red Line Metro stop. Having lived in Ethiopia for three years, and having searched out good Ethiopian eateries in the States and elsewhere for three decades, we thought ABOL was one of the top three we have experienced. In Amharic, "abol" translates as "authentic" and the food and service are exactly that. We tried one of the combination platters; highlights were a robust, flavorful and distinctive "doro we't" or chicken stew (served traditionally here with a hard-boiled egg), a sweet beef stew with carrots, and perhaps my favorite, "yekik alicha" or yellow split peas. ABOL is a must stop for residents and visitors.
