Excellent Ethiopian restaurant with delicious vegan options! - Edit

I had lunch at Enjera with a non vegan friend on Oct 28 2017. We started with a Veggie Sambusa with lentils and potatoes and it was excellent! We both shared a vegan platter. I had the Veggie Combo without the spicy lentils and the veggies were delicious especially the yellow split peas and alicha. My friend tried the Vegan Kitfo Dullet which was a vegan meat with mushroom entree. She enjoyed it very much but it was too spicy for me. Good service and nice ambiance. Highly recommend.

Pros: excellent food, multiple vegan options, friendly staff, good service, nice ambiance

Cons: no vegan dessert options

Best Ethiopian Restaurant In The Area - Edit

I have been indulging in vegan Ethiopian combo plates for years.

This is definitely the best in Northern VS, and possibly the best in the DC area.

I ordered the combo plate, and all of the dishes were flavorful, the textures were spot on, and the dish was the perfect size.

The restaurant itself has a warm, classy feel.

I need to try the other vegan items on the menu, including mock meat dishes.


Pros: separate vegan section on menu

Enjera is great (to those who like the sour taste).

2 unique vegan dishes - Edit

Most Ethiopian restaurants have your standard fare, as does this restaurant: salad, injera, fit fit, sambusas, lentils, collards, yellow split peas and shiro. All good stuff! Very vegan! Very filling!

However, Enjera also had thin, delicious teff gluten-free injera ($2 more) and 2 vegan entrees. One of those entrees is mushroom based and the other is tofu and tomato and onions based. You can order them a la carte or as a sampler with the shiro. However, it is pricy, at about $25 per person give or take with tax and tip.

Good food, but the price feels high.

Pros: Vegan entrees, Vegan appetizers, Gluten free injera

Cons: Expensive, Parking

Fantastic Food - Edit

If the app would let me, I'd give this place five stars. There are a few clearly marked vegan dishes on the menu and the staff is very helpful with food choices.
I could eat here every week and never tire of the food. This is a must go place if you are anywhere near the area.

Pros: Food is delicious, Friendly staff, Amazing vegan options

Cons: No cons - this place is perfect!

Good veggie combo --- hours listed here are wrong - Edit

I went here at 9PM on a Monday and it was open. They said till 11pm. (Yelp claims 2am so it is wrong in a different way.) So this is not a lunch-only place as the current Happy Cow listing seems to suggest. The staff is very friendly and the place is attractive.

They have about 4 veggie choices (one chickpea stew-like dish, two with mock meats, and one veggie combo with collards, cabbage, two kinds of lentils, and some salad). I had the veggie combo and it was served in the Ethiopian restaurant style on top of Injera bread with cut rolls of Injera on the side as well. The portions were huge --- I could eat about half of my plate and packed the rest to eat the next day.

Pros: tasty veggie choices, friendly staff, huge portions

Cons: prices reasonable but not cheap
