De Smaak van Afrika – The taste of colourful Africa

As soon as you enter ‘De Smaak van Afrika’ you get overwhelmed by the scent of tasty food, and sucked in by the interior decorations full of bright colours, lights, and murals. Even the tables are all colourfully decorated by hand.

Their specialties are the different Enjera platters, consisting of a huge enjera (African sourdough risen flatbread) topped with different stews, meats, fish, vegetables and salad. This all should be eaten by hand, and in case you are insecure, there is a manual on the table telling you how to eat with your hands and stay classy at the same time. I would recommend the specialty enjera platter for two, which contains a bit of everything and is almost enough for three people, especially if you add some starters. The lentil soup is great, and so is the the Shiro (bread with a creamy tomato hummus dip).

To complete the experience there is a choice of African beers, including Mongozo beer which is served in half a coconut.
