You know the food is going to be incredible when the owner is standing behind the counter when you walk in. Nina was patient and gave me a taste of her two sauces when I was indecisive about which to choose. I went for the fufu and it was everything I imagined. Soft, fluffy and slightly chewy. The spinach sauce was thick and robust, completed with the succulent lamb. 10/10. The high protein steak bowl was the other dish we tried. The steak was tender and flavorous. The peanut sauce is rich and comforting. 10/10. Nina’s flavored lemonades are unique and tasty, as might be expected. I could eat her food every single day. We were so full but couldn’t stop eating. Hopefully the company expands to Lincoln ;) Thank you so much, Nina!!

The food here is excellent!! Such wonderful, bright flavors. I ordered the Jeloff #2. Everything was cooked perfectly, excellent flavors. Do not skip the plantains. They were easily my favorite part of the dish. Homemade lemonades are also wonderful and refreshing. Great service and experience. Highly recommend for something fresh and healthy.

Food was unique and amazing! It must have been the owner that helped me too. She was amazing. I will definitely be back. Despite being unique flavors, all the dishes were so tasty and I ate my whole steak bowl.

This was the first time we came here. We tried the build-a-bowl. One with lamb, grilled vegetables, garlic potatoes, and fried plantains. The other one was chicken, garlic potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, sweet corn and fried plantains. We got the sauce on the side so we could try the peanut sauce and the tomato sauce. Both were very good. The tomato sauce has a little kick to it, just the right amount. The food was delicious! 👍😍 We will definitely be back. I forgot to take pictures, but the other pictures on these reviews are excellent. We had plenty for leftovers to take home and will enjoy them later. 😊

Had the pork bowl, peanut chicken bowl, beef kabobs and large order of plantains. The food was delicious! We love supporting local family run businesses. Nina and Fabio are the best!

The lamb was fall off the bone tender without being dry, the red rice and the house tomato paired with the meat and other sides really well. I need to go back and try more items on this interesting menu!

I enjoyed everything about my meal, but the real standouts were the sweet potatoes, the house specialty peanut butter sauce, the fried plantains, and the ginger lemonade. There also about a dozen other menu options I need to try :)
