Main

Jollof Rice 

This West African dish is full of bold and harmonious flavors, with a unique sweet and subtle spicy taste. Jollof rice starts with a special tomato and red pepper paste featuring harissa and every women has her own secret recipe. The rice is then slow cooked in a rich vegetable broth. It is a staple in every Nigerian celebration, and there is no party without Jollof Rice.

Baked Chicken

Cubed, boneless, halal chicken breast  is marinated in a green seasoning mix of cilantro, green onions, green pepper and coconut milk then oven baked. The zesty chicken pairs perfectly with the sweet and spiciness of the Jollof Rice.

Plantain and Black Eyed Peas

The smell and sight of frying plantain is one of life’s simple pleasures. These little pockets of golden goodness are well known as Dodo in Nigeria. For this vegetarian option, the Jollof rice is studded with black eyed peas, and topped fried plantain.
