Little Sesame, a wonderful little jewel of a restaurant in downtown DC will be making a special neighborhood delivery on Friday, December 4th from 5-5:30. Menu and ordering link can be found here. Deadline to order is Thursday (12-3) at 5:00 pm.
That is because a few of the dishes they’ll be offering are a 12 -hour prep affair. Their rotisserie chicken and Shawarma spiced chicken are marinated in 13 spices overnight. They’ll also be offering their roasted cauliflower and of course their signature famous hummus. It is the very BEST I’ve ever tasted! Not at all even remotely similar to what you buy in the supermarket… Little Sesame single origin sources their organic Kabuli chickpeas from regenerative farmer Casey Bailey in Fort Benton, Montana who grows them exclusively for Little Sesame. In the Middle East where hummus originates, it is not just a dip, but it serves as the main course. Since the onset of the pandemic and the shut down in March, Little Sesame has partnered with local and national nonprofits – World Central Kitchen, Share Our Strength and Dreaming out Loud – producing and serving nearly 75,000 meals to some of DC’s most vulnerable populations. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming Little Sesame to our community and supporting them by ordering some of their delicious offerings. (Check out their family meals, fattoush salad & tagine kits too).
