Talking Drums RestaurantThe location still bears traces of its former life as a Chinese restaurant, but Talking Drums is devoted to the varied cuisine of Africa. One co-owner, Alex, mans the front and is always eager to explain the many exotic choices on the menu, from fufu to moin moin. The other, Toyin, works the kitchen to produce the authentic and tasty entrées themselves. Visit the in-house market for all of your West African and Carribbean shopping needs.

Santa Fe - Santa Fe
Jambo CaféOwner/chef Ahmed Obo was born on the island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya, among the culinary traditions of Africa, Arabia and India. His food reflects the Lamu style of culinary fusion. It’s designed to be interesting and different but doesn’t attempt to force anyone too far from their comfort zone. The ingredients, including a host of local meats and veggies, are priced unusually low for a restaurant dealing in clean, local food. Try the marinated tilapia, served with red chile-and-coconut-infused basmati rice, sautéed spinach, and a dried fruit and ginger chutney. (Alibi Staff, January 31, 2012)
