West African

2018 Winner: Safari African Restaurant

This Mattapan spot serves West African dishes from places like Nigeria and Guinea that Bostonians rarely experience. However familiar you are with its sources, it’s easy to enjoy colorfully enticing plates like kabobs of beef or chicken grilled over charcoal and coated with a ground peanut sauce, Vietnamese-inspired fried spring rolls called nems, the Senegalese grilled lamb dish with mustard-onion sauce known as dibi and rich fish stews like Senegal’s thiebu djen.
