What You'll Get
Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $13, you get $30 worth of pan-African cuisine and drinks at Afrique Bistro in Eliot.
Afrique Bistro boasts a menu of simple, elegant sustenance that will dance atop your tongue with the grace of a gazelle—or when paired with the sweet droplets of wine, beer, or a cocktail, like a smooth Gene Kelly. Prep your palate with a creative Bourbon Tangawizi (Bulliet bourbon, ginger juice, fresh ginger, and soda, $7) or a Serengeti Sipper (Johnnie Walker Red, sweet vermouth, bitters, and an orange twist, $6), coupled with a plate of Afrique chicken wings, doused in your choice of homemade specialty African sauces ($5). Bobotie is a zesty casserole that appeals to sweet and salty teeth, baked with either chicken or beef (your choice) and sweetened with sautéed onions, apricots, apples, and raisins ($12). For an exciting meat-free repast, wake a mixed variety of veggies from their savory coconut-covered dreams atop a bed of rice ($11), or indulge in a mixture of market sea treats steeped in warm spices with a plate of fish stew ($15).
A relaxed ambience, warm food, and friendly service make meals at Afrique Bistro feel like home—unless home means nagging moms and laborious chores, then it's more like a welcomed vacation. The restaurant's rust-colored floors and light wooden tables are energized by red chairs and rich, elegant light, setting the stage for a romantic rendezvous or casual gathering. Afrique Bistro also plays host to weekly entertainment series including live music on Friday. Check out the restaurant's event calendar to plan a culinary escape that suits your tastes.
