EAT: ETHIOPIAN CUISINE AT BENYAM
First on the menu was a plate of Sambusa which were crispy pastry puffs filled with beef and was nicely spiced up with a robust red sauce that accompanied the order. Another Ethiopian favorite to try out was the honey wine which was a light white that had a slightly sweet but crisp finish. Our main entree was the Dor Wot which is the signature dish that features chicken in a rich savory stew served over sour dough injera which is somewhat like a spongy crepe.
No utensils are ever used so the aforementioned bread is torn apart and used to pick up the delicious offerings on the plate. Those who have not tried Ethiopian cooking before should definitely make it over to this friendly, family-owned business and try out something new in the neighborhood.
