Visiting DC with a family of four, tried Ethiopian food for the first time. We chose Dukem based on a strong recommendation from a friend. We went for dinner on a Monday evening and it was not crowded at all. We sat on the patio and told our server that we were new to the experience. She recommended a sampler platter and I really enjoyed the variety of meats and vegetables. More flavorful than spicy. Our server walked us through all the dishes and what types of flavors to look for in each one. She even explained how to eat it since there is no silverware involved, trust me on this. The atmosphere was laid back, the service was friendly, and two adults and two hungry kids were full for less than $50. Not bad. Since this is my first time eating food from this culture I really can't compare it to anything else, but I still recommend Dukem. Overall a great experience.
