Fodor's Expert Review Keren Cafe & Restaurant

$ Adams Morgan African
The Washington, D.C. metro area is home to one of the largest Eritrean populations in the United States, and many in the community get their taste of home at this well-established restaurant. Try the shiro,an aromatic Eritrean chickpea stew served in a clay pot along with spongy injera bread. Keren is also a popular neighborhood breakfast spot, offering classic American egg sandwiches; if, however, you're up for a virtual trip, try the ful, a dish made with mashed fava beans. The restaurant is small and simple but big in flavor and history.
