Keren Eritrean Restaurant
In a city with amazing Ethiopian food, Eritrean food often gets wrongly conflated as one and the same. Keren Eritrean Restaurant in Dupont Circle reminds us of the subtle yet notable differences in dishes like tibsi, the Eritrean version of tibs. The food here is amazing, and breakfast is an underrated hit. Keren's ful and eggs, a stewed fava bean and egg sandwich on a hoagie roll, is a comforting morning ritual if you’re looking for sustenance and flavor. Don’t sleep on dinner, though. The restaurant is busy every weeknight and has a bar with a bunch of East African beers and wines. It’s a great spot for dates or catching up with friends.
