Taste of West Africa


If gluten free food is what you’re after, here are 10 plates taste-tested by Jane Loves Local, a professional Foodie and one of our awesome contributors! She visited three local restaurants and shared her results with us. Thanks, Jane!


Plate I – Burrata chees and olives. This is like the food version of a dirty martini.

Plate 2- Falafel with Tzatziki. You had me at fried balls! GF or not, you will gobble these up.

Plate 3- Can you ever go wrong with hummus?!

Plate 4- Dolma or stuffed grape leaves are little works of art. The flavor is not subtle so proceed with caution.

Plate 5- I have not met a toddler or grandma that did not gobble up fried plantains. If you are dipping your toes into African cuisine, start with plantains.

Plate 6- Kelewele. Say that and TRY not to smile! A spicier savory plantain dish.

Plate 7- Stewed chicken. It falls off the bone and melts in your mouth.

Plate 8- Peanut butter soup with goat. You just have to take one bite to fall in love!

Plate 9- Okra Soup with bell peppers made it gluten free and vegan.


Rude Awakening-

The first coffee shop to hear gluten-free-bees needs. They stock some of JP’s Pastry’s yummiest treats. You would never guess they were gluten free!

Plate 10- Vegan and GF Morning Glory muffins. Surprisingly moist. We gobbled these down before photos sorry!
