In this downright swanky setting, the moi moi (African beans blended with tomatoes and spices, steamed into a gelatinous mold) and goat pepper soup taste wonderfully authentic. Adventurous eaters should try some fufu dishes (the base is pounded yams), but for more timid souls, the jollof rice comes with a liberal serving of fried plantains.

Order: Moi moi, $2.99; goat pepper soup, $5.99; jollof rice, $9.99
