Really good and flavorful food

The food was very well flavored and salted. I had questions and they were happy to answer them. I ordered the vegan beef kebab patty, the peanut stew, vegan egusi and jollof rice for me and my family. We all enjoyed it. No complaint at all. Staff was friendly.

Pros: Delicious food, Good customer service, Good vegan options

Down by the United Nations

This place, which is one block away from the UN, offers authentic African food, with a large selection of vegan items. The food here is healthy and delicious, and quite filling. A base (such as coconut fried rice, fufu, or some African-style starch) plus a vegan protein+ starch costs about $20, and the portions are so large that it will be enough for a few meals.

This place seems most suited for takeout. You order at the counter, and they scoop your selection into eco-friendly containers. The place is tiny, with one cramped table for two inside, and a few metal tables and chairs outdoors--if the weather is nice, you can take your food to a nearby park (such as Dag Hammerskjold Plaza).

Pros: Very filling, healthy, lots of vegan options., Great for takeout.

Cons: Not much seating, no bathroom.
