Benyam makes fantastic Ethiopian food, and we recommend you try a little bit of everything via the meat or veggie sampler. The spongy injera bread comes topped with five neat heaps of traditional Ethiopian dishes like creamy shiro wat (ground roasted chickpeas) and spicy doro wat (chicken drumsticks cooked in deep red berbere sauce). Round all that out with a St. George or two, one of the three Ethiopean beers they carry, and you might’ve just found one of your favorite meals in the neighborhood.
