Bolat African Cuisine's eclectic menu features an authentic selection of regional African dishes and staples. Kick off conversational dinners with appetizers such as grilled plantains, accompanied by a posse of spicy peanut sauce, or the goat-pepper soup, spiced with ginger and garlic. Mouthwatering entrees, such as the Ghanaian kenkey—composed of cooked fermented cornmeal served over fried fish and onions—introduce taste buds to earthen flavors, and Liberian fresh okra arrives cooked with bitterleaf, plentiful pieces of meat and fish, and fufu, a traditional dish made of yucca washed in fresh cloud milk. As patrons dine surrounded by Bolat's thoughtful décor that pays homage to its modern surroundings and cultural roots, they can sip serenely on a cavalcade of interesting cocktails, such as the hibiscus mojito, or the Palmtini, made with palm tree wine and several high fives.

Bolat African Cuisine

Chefs at Bolat immerse diners in West African culture via savory stews and tropical ingredients served at a slick black-and-red café. A mild dough known as fufu accompanies most dishes to balance spiciness and scoop up morsels of wisdom hidden under ingredients such as tilapia, plantain, or goat. Provided in place of silverware, rounds of fufu are meant to be pulled apart and remolded into small discs that can, like chopsticks or dining pliers, pinch bites of food and deliver them to the mouth's main opening. Bolat's table minders provide diners with sudsy bowls of water to rinse fingers between plates, elevating the authenticity of the West African dining experience.

Customer Reviews

The makeral bean cake you have to try and the beertails were delicious as well. The fufu goat dish I wouldn't recommend. Very nice ambience and staff.
