Discount Profile: Dukem Restaurant

Care of Karin Tomas Located on the Danforth, just steps from Donlands subway stop, Dukem Restaurant offers a casual, relaxed setting to enjoy all the rich flavours of Ethiopia. As you enter the restaurant through a thick set of curtains, you’re met with the wonderful aroma of spices, the sounds of African and Reggae music, and a warm, friendly greeting from the owner. Start your meal off with a delicious bowl of lentil soup or one of two salad options. The best way to experience Ethiopian cuisine is with a communal combination platter. A portion for two people (which would easily serve three) features a large variety of vegan dishes and a plate of neatly folded crepe-like bread (Injira) served alongside your platter. As is tradition, your meal is eaten by hand using the Injira to scoop up the delicious, perfectly spiced offerings. The vegetarian combo platter offers a huge selection.

I must say that this restaurant is one of Toronto’s best kept veggie secrets! The authentic African cuisine is bound to turn one’s palate on, and if your experience with the hostess and wait staff is anything like mine, then you will be sure to enjoy every moment of your interaction in that space. When I arrived it was a chilly winter evening, the resto was warm with pleasant lighting, comfy seating, and a nice hot tea served fresh for me. There are so many savoury dishes to try, but we were lucky to have several already prepared, and soon after getting there, dinner was served. The atmosphere of the place was just vibrant, and even those not so keen on spicy foods can appreciate the genuine Ethiopian tastes with every bite. It was my first time there but most certainly not the last! Check out this piping hot spot on Queen West and you’ll be sure to take pleasure in their plant-based menu, desserts to die for, and… Read More
