On my most recent business trip to the US, the foodista that I am went and indulged in African Food.
Yes, I know from Abidjan to Atlanta and back to Africa?!?
Truth be told, having African delicacies was not on my foodie bucket list (yes I must admit, I had one) but I just could not resist the temptation of tasting the Nigerian suya that my friend had been talking about over and over again.
Ike’s Café and Grill is a restaurant that serves West African dishes as you can see with the little flags in the menu. It has a warm and nice laid-back atmosphere with an African twist.
Overall, we had a pleasant experience with the staff but were slightly disappointed with the waitress who kept forgetting some of the things we asked her.
My friend, who is a regular there, knew the manager who allowed to take a picture of his Tee, which I found original.
Noooow speaking of THE most important thing: the Foood. It was on point! I had to refrain myself from diving in the beef suya with my fingers. We had it as an appetizer, along with the chicken suya which I found less tasty than the beef.
We had a real feast and best believe it was none of our birthdays.
My friend went back and tried the egusi soup & the pounded yam which is a very popular Nigerian dish and she loved it.
If you miss the motherland or you are simply curious about West African food in Atlanta, you definitely want to hit Ike’s Cafe and Grill.
