Thanks to all Chowhounds who advised me to try Ethiopian food at Dukem at 11th and U Street. When I lived in D.C. in the mid-1990's, I often went to Fasika or Meskerem in Adams Morgan. Dukem was simply fantastic we got the vegetarian platter with 7 items with fish and it was a fantastic mix of flavors and textures.
Fresh, spicy and flavorful. Two thumbs up for Dukem.
