Owner and 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. The ingredients he are primarily locally sourced meats and veggies, and are surprising priced low for a restaurant dealing in clean, local food. We like the marinated tilapia, served with red chile-and-coconut-infused basmati rice, sauted spinach, and a dried fruit and ginger chutney and—naturally—jerk chicken wings served in a pineapple curry dipping sauce.

The 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.
