Finger Licking Bukateria

This flagship West African restaurant in southwest Houston specializes in cuisine found in countries like Nigeria and Ghana. The waitstaff and customers also predominantly hail from that part of the world, but there's no language barrier thanks to the helpful staff. Good starter items are the finely spiced pepper soup or the savory jollof rice. Of course, you can go all out and order some egusi and fufu to discover the true meaning of "finger-licking good."
