Neighborhood: Beltsville

Kevin Onyona’s always-swarmed restaurant bills itself as Kenyan, but that’s an inexact descriptor for his relentlessly cross-cultural menu, which includes samosas, chapati, and a fried tilapia drenched in a stinging masala sauce. The fish is marvelous, but the must-order is the goat wet fry, a mix of charred, bone-in goat, tomatoes, and onions that tastes like Africa’s answer to fajitas.
