Descended from Korhogo 126, an Ivory Coast restaurant in Carroll Gardens that didn't last long, Kuti's reconfigures the joint as a sandwich shop, selling various types of schwarma (one per day), served in a wrap or with polished rice on a platter. The lamb was spectacular when we tasted it, and other sandwich stuffings include beef brain and tongue, and a vegetarian option, too. We found the shrimp piri-piri (an Angolan staple) as hot as we wanted it to be, and, to counter all the flesh, there are pristine salads and black-eyed pea fritters, known in the Ivory Coast as akaka. Finally, you can snack like a Nigerian by ordering the peanut-dusted lamb kebabs called sukuya.
