It’s no secret that Silver Spring is home to a large Ethiopian population and many Ethiopian restaurants. But now, one downtown Silver Spring restaurant is one of the best — at least according to Eater D.C.
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 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week for takeout and limited dine-in. Try the breakfast firfir combo (scrambled eggs, seasoned cracked wheat, spiced bread) or buttery bula porridge.
Beteseb was also featured in the Washington, D.C. episode of Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s PBS series No Passport Required, which aired in 2018.
