Hamdi Grill is a new Somali restaurant that opened this week. It is located just south of the Northern Lights shopping center on Cleveland Avenue.
The interior is surprisingly polished and a lot of money has been invested in the build out.
The menu is fairly large and includes drinks (not pictured).
Of the dishes that we sampled (beef kebab, roasted goat, salmon and chicken stew) we’d probably give the nod to the chicken stew (aka suqaar) and would recommend the rice. We found all of the dishes to be solid but you can find better versions at other Somali restaurants around town. However, Hamdi Grill is in the first week and still getting up and running. They are waiting for their coffee machine to be installed and did not have all of the dishes listed on the menu.
As is typical of Somali restaurants the portions are large. Pictured below Somali chicken stew (suqaar) with chapati.
