|Moi moi ($3) - "A bean cake made from black-eyed peas blended with peppers and onions and steamed until well done. Great for vegetarians." Skip the cow feet and just do this for an appetizer.|
|Tusker - a South African beer ($5): It smelled almost like a cider, with a sweet malty taste.|
For the entrees, you choose one of five types of fufu ("a dumpling made from pounded grain and served with a soup for dipping"), one of five soups, and one of four meats.
The dried yam wasn't quite as tasty as the regular. It was more bitter and had less of the nice potatoey flavor the pounded yam had.
That menu design makes me want to come back and try more combinations until I've had each of the components at least one, perhaps ultimately coming to a conclusion of the ultimate combo. Also I still want to try several appetizers and sides. The restaurant itself is delightful, not too big or small, not too loud or dark or obnoxious, not hard to get in, great service, fun decor, really just the nicest kind of experience. I guess Roslindale has its perks.
