Dukem Ethiopian in DC,

Dukem is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in DC. Off the top of my head, almost all of their food is gf except for the pastry filled dishes and FitFit which includes the injera (bread) with the food. They used to have an all teff injera, but have now switched to a mixed version- I've been told it's because teff is too expensive so they have to buy the mixed versions. Attached to Dukem they have a grocery store that sells injera. I have found one brand that says it is all teff, so if you want to buy a whole package you can always do that and take it in with you. You can always freeze it for later. I have made my own and taken it along as well. One last piece of advice- all the dishes are served on top of injera, so you're going to have to ask for yours without it and you have to really emphasize that. Only problem with that is if you're eating with other people everyone shares a platter so they have to be okay with no injera underneath their food (it's tastier when it soaks up the juices). I recommend their biggest combination platter (don't remember the number) as well as the goden tibs but everything is fantastic! Etete is also a great option around the corner for great tibs and vegetarian combo platters, but same deal with a mixed injera. POSTED BY DC CELIACS SUPPORT GROUP
