You’ve probably had Mexican food before, and there’s probably a good chance that you’ve tasted Chinese, Japanese, and maybe even Thai food. But something that you don’t see very often is a West African restaurant. That’s a shame because this region has some of the best food in the world. But where can you try some? That’s easy. All you have to do is attend the Blagden Alley African Food Tasting on Blagden Alley. This springtime event will give you the chance to try all of the best dishes from this part of the world. Who knows? You might just find a new favorite.
You can head to this event on Saturday, March 2, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. During that time, you’ll get the opportunity to taste a wide range of food that comes from West Africa. You’re not going to believe how good these dishes are. Just keep in mind that you have to RSVP. When you go, you’ll get free entry. However, you will still have to pay for the food. If you want just five samples, you only have to pay $20. But when you choose the $35 option, you can taste more than eight samples, and you’ll also get a to-go box to carry some of the food home with you (and you will definitely want to!).
If you already know anything about West African cuisine, you know that it’s a wide-ranging cuisine full of unique textures and flavors. That means that there are going to be a lot of dishes for you to try when you attend. Just some of these are jollof rice, fufu, spinach stew, red red, jerk wings, fried yams, and pepper soup. Once you try some of these dishes, you will be looking up how to make them for yourself. They really are that good.
