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.

This plate could make us vegetarians for life. It comes with thin, spongey injera with generous dollops of bright stews creating a rainbow of color and flavor. A favorite is the spicy brick-red lentils, prepared with chili-infused berbere.
This salad consists of a mix of injera slices, tomatoes, onions, and jalapeño tossed in a bright, lemony dressing, and it's the perfect complement to any hot and spicy stews.
