Safari Cafe in Worcester
I spotted this place the other day, about a block east of Park Ave on Chandler. It's a clean little place, almost too clean for the neighborhood. The staff were very welcoming, and they offered a buffet, so I tried that. East African comfort food. A beef stewish dish, tripe (gave this a pass), potatoes, greens, corn bread, a cabbage dish, beans, and a flavored rice (maybe with berbere spices minus the heat?). Even though I usually go for things with wild flavors, it was all very good and fresh. I didn't even know they had a full menu until I was leaving, so next time I'll try the curry goat and some of the other specialties. Worcester needs more dining options, so I hope this place survives.
