College Park Senegalese restaurant Koité Grill has expanded to Silver Spring, opening in the former home of Abol Ethiopian Restaurant at 8626 Colesville Road.
The Koité family originally opened the College Park location in 2016, which, according to The Diamondback, was originally a Halal Meat Shop & Grocery Store:
The siblings’ mother started the family business after moving to the U.S. from Senegal in 2002 and working in catering for some time. The family bought the store from a halal shop owner on the verge of failure and brought in more customers, Koité said.
The menu features Senegalese favorites and daily specials, as well as burgers, wraps and salads. According to Yelp, their Dibi is quite popular, described on their menu as “House special juicy tender charcoal grill lamb, goat or chicken, with grilled seasoned onions and a dash of special Dijon hot pepper sauce.”
Koité Grill can be reached at (240) 847-7016 or on Instagram. According to their Instagram page, their hours are 12 PM to 9 PM, 7 days a week.
