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.
