This prime corner spot on Burnside Avenue in hilly Morris Heights (looks like San Francisco!) offers what is probably the world's largest African steam table, over 50 feet in length. That means you can ignore the immense and confusing menu on the wall at African Grill, and simply have heaped onto your plate whatever looks good to you at the moment. The choice of mashes includes rice-based omotuo; plantain and white-yam fufus; and stinky, fermented-cassava banku; among many more. Stews of beef, lamb, and chicken in peanut, palm nut, and leaf-based sauces are available, but so are simpler fried dishes such as tilapia and guinea fowl. A convivial fenced-off dining room in the rear provides seating.
