My goal is to discover gluten-free food in the District to make your gluten-free diet easier.
What I got: Hummus bowl topped with seasonal veggies and a 10-hour egg. Each option comes with a tasty and fresh side salad. Once you’ve eaten all the toppings and the plain hummus gets to be too much, simply dump your salad into the hummus for an extended meal. Just ditch the pita bread that comes on the side and it’s the perfect quick lunch. Note: the menu items are seasonal and change based on availability.
Gluten-free friendliness: With only seven menu items, it’s great that every main dish is gluten-free, minus the pita bread. (And you can always find a friend who wants your extra pita.) Vegetarians will love this place, too. All options except the chicken shawarma are only veggies.
Overall vibe: Little Sesame certainly isn’t a cheapest way to satisfy your hummus craving, but it is worth the money once in a while for some delicious hummus. The restaurant is hard to find – it’s in a basement under DGS (an incredible brunch spot in it’s own right) but finding it is half the fun. The space is packed during lunch hours, which is unfortunately since the whole place is only open from 11 am – 2 pm Monday through Friday.
Gluten-free gut reaction: Would go back
