Ghanian Resturant in Berkeley
So I am minding my own business in my commute from Ukiah to Petaluma listening to KPFA. Then there is this quick mention of a Ghanian Resturant in Berkeley. Title with "tropical in it"
My head does a quick double take. Anyone with experience with this resturant? Any other Resturants with West African cuisine (any country) in the Bay Area.
This inquiring mind wants to know!
I love Afghani food- but this is cuisine from Central Asia not Africa (along the silk road).
My son is half Ethiopian/Eritrea (paternal grandparents from each place) so I've scoped out most of the places in the Bay Area. Bringing him along is great cache-sure way to great service.
Senegal and Cameroon (Benin) are Francophone (ex colonies of France), Ghana (Anglophone ex British Colony) All are in west Africa with some similarities. I like food from all over the continent from Egypt to South Africa from east to west as well:)
Yah know, I'm not so up on my African Geography. Two different places are:
Taxi Brousse on San Pablo (Senegalese)
A Taste of Africa (Cameroonian
I like Taxi Brousse better but they both have their good points.
There's a bunch of Etheopian joints on Telegraph in Oakland/Berkeley or there about.
There's Zazoo near Jack London Square that serves regular all-American food and the other side of the menu has Afghani.
Not a restaurant, but at a few Farmers Markets (Old Oakland, Montclair, also Oakland) there's a stand that sells Afghani food.
