East African Restaurant, Hakuna Matata Kitchen & Bar, coming to former Cusbah space on H Street


1128 H Street, NE

Some more good scuttlebutt (and much more coming this week): I hear that the folks behind Hakuna Matata Grill in Silver Spring/Wheaton will be opening a location in the former Cusbah space. This appears to be confirmed by a website called USA Restaurants, and this source has an 89% accuracy rating so I feel very good about this.

Their website says:

“Hakuna Matata was born out of a hunger to share the rich culture of Africa through the food!

We are a mix of relatives and friends who became family decades ago, and we love to eat and spend time together. We love to cook together in our homes, but whenever we would want to eat out, we had minimal options for East African food in the District of Colombia, Maryland and Virginia region.

Hakuna Matata Grill brings the delightful taste of authentic East African cuisine to the DC Metrtopolitan Area. Explore a variety of fine African dishes, with an explosion of flavors from across East Africa, India, and Portugal, prepared by our award-winning Executive Chef Paul “Smokey” Ofwono.”

You can see their menu here. Stay tuned.
