I wish this was a more useful post that included a review but that will follow. For now, i am planning (full disclosure: this has been a plan for 3 months) to go there soon and wanted to hear some opinions. It is a Cameroonian restaurant which was recommended to me for their whole fish and pepper soup. I will be getting both of those when I go but has anyone been there that has additional recommendations? Thanks and I'll be sure to report back after I try it.

Also, any other recommendations for West African food (read: not Ethiopian)?

  1. Have you hit Kemi's Kitchen in Grand Prairie

    or African Village in Irving, technically Kasbah is also West African (Moroccan) also in Irving just due west of African Village

      LH: I'm a longtime reader but first time poster. Do you have a solid rec for an authentic Moroccan restaurant in Dallas/Irving/Carrollton? I've lived here for 7 years and have yet to find a solid Moroccan restaurant...on the floor with spicy goodness in a tajine. Any recs are most appreciated!

        LH may come up with something different but, I will recommend Baboush in uptown's West Village.

        It's a shame Cafe Marrakesh closed up about a year ago. They were very authentic and their Moroccan food was the best in Dallas.

          Thank you TW!!! Can't believe I've never heard of Baboush given that I live a quarter of a mile from west village. We'll definitely be trying it out this weekend.

    2. There is Yembol Kitchen in Irving - I believe it is Nigerian. I think the South Sudanese Restaurant in Richardson closed even before I could try it out. There used to be another Sudanese restaurant on Audelia Rd - not sure if it still exists.
