African Food?

disemvowel Jun 24, 2010 12:07 PM

Does anyone know of any good places for african cuisine in the Tampa / St. Pete area?

It seems like I'm down to just Queen of Sheba now. African Eateries on Waters Ave recently closed down (owner died, sadly),

I'd prefer another Nigerian place if possible, but beggars can't be choosers, as they say ;)

            I think he was the pharmacist at CVS several years ago. He looked really familiar to me. That made it even scarier

          the area is not exactly a hotbed of sub-Saharan cuisine. We can't get blood from a stone. With a name like that, can you?
