Delicious West Africa food

The food is amazing and consistent. I've eaten there for years and it is always great. And the vegan, vegetarian, and other food is clearly designated. Even my very meat eating friends loved the vegan food from here.

Cons: Can be a bit much since it is by weight. , But totally worth it.

The atmosphere is clean and bright. Food is wonderful and fresh. The chef is pleasant. We enjoyed and recommend it. Ask for a sample of teas before buying. They could be sweet.

The food at this place is delicious!
The mock chicken and greens are the most yummy!
the atmosphere is rather sterile however. But it is worth it to try the food.

Pros: great food, great food, great food

Cons: odd atmosphere, unclear hours

delicious Liberian food!

I love to frequent this corner cafe in downtown Richmond at lunchtime, as they often serve vegetarian fare with a Liberian twist. The owner and chef, Ms. Ma-Musu, makes a point to separate the meat/meat stock foods from the veg ones, which always puts me at ease. She even makes *from-scratch* drinks such as ginger tea and herbal lemonade (just be sure to follow them up with a glass of water, as they can sometimes be really, really sweet).

Ma-Musu's cuisine is served buffet-style, but unfortunately, in Styrofoam containers. So if you don't mind consuming delicious veg fare in a less-than-green/no-frills setting, this is the place for you!

Pros: cheap, yummy, down-home Liberian food, attentive owner/staff, convenient location/parking

Cons: no-frills/sterile atmosphere, Styrofoam containers
