Fava Pot, the Egyptian restaurant group that started as a Tysons Corner food truck in 2013, is moving into Dupont Circle with a new location that’s expected to open by June, Washington City Paper reports. Founder Dina Daniel’s new business will bring downtown diners a fast-casual option for kofta sandwiches, kebab bowls, falafel, and its signature koshary — a mix of lentils, rice, pasta, and a spicy tomato sauce, topped with chickpeas and sweet caramelized onions — in the former OKI Bowl space at 1817 M Street NW. Fava Pot’s footprint now includes a full-service Falls Church restaurant and a Union Market stall.
