West Africa’s soups and rice dishes are the centerpieces at this no-frills spot, embodying a slow-food approach that characterizes the whole menu. Service is pretty basic, and it will probably help if you already know what fufu (a starchy pounded dough) and soya (a spicy meat skewer) are before ordering. Start with the empanada-like meat pie and move on to bright and spicy African fried rice with beef, chicken, or goat. Crushed ogbono seeds, spinach, and meat are the main ingredients of the okra-like ogbono soup, perfect with the fufu.
