BEST AFRICAN RESTAURANT
1107 N. Old World Third St.
Yinka and Moji Adedokun opened African Hut in 1993 and have been exciting (and educating) our taste buds ever since. Despite an unremarkable interior, the restaurant offers a lively dining experience and a good introduction to the cuisines of several African countries. The meat and vegetarian dishes are slow-cooked to perfection and served with different varieties of rice and zesty spices. Desserts such as warm cassava pudding are every bit as scrumptious as they sound. (A.M.)
