We love going to the Dukem in Baltimore. I have heard there is one in Washington, but why go there when the best is right here in Baltimore? Their food is authentic and delicious! Give it a try, no utensils required! So much fun.

Place to visit with a large group of friends and let the flavours and conversation take over. We got the 3rd combo as you can see in the pic, a good portion of various vegetarian and meat options.

Short Answer = order a Veggie Sampler & tell them you're Vegan (you'll get tofu sour cream instead of dairy + no butter). Beyond Superb! Try to go at off-peak hours; this place is very popular with the locals and gets crowded, fast. It's small...More
