I love Teaism. It's a staple stop-by for me when I'm in the Penn Quarter neighborhood. Primarily a tea house, they have great vegan meals as well. I decided to try their Dupont Circle location this time.
We arrived around noon on a Saturday. It was relatively busy, but not too much so. This review will be very short because I just ordered one item and my friend didn't eat. So, really, I'm just here to rave about the Tempeh Scramble because (1) it's so hard to find tempeh at a non-vegan restaurant and (2) it's so hard to find tempeh done right. Teaism got it!
This scramble was absolutely delectable with chickpeas, fennel, spinach, and small potatoes in light turmeric curry served with a pappadum. It had so much flavor and so much umami, I could totally eat this for dinner.
So, that's it. Just a note to say that this dish is divine and for $9.25, a steal. Although, I wish they had more seating at this location, it's otherwise a-okay.
