Funmi’s Café

The menu at Funmi’s Café swims with the names of West African dishes, tangles of unfamiliar syllables. Chapati, asaro, jollof rice, and kelewele may sound intimidating initially, but they conceal a cuisine characterized by warmth and gentle spice. Chapati is a warm, unleavened bread cooked quickly in a skillet and ideal for scooping up the last bites of thick goat stew. Asaro is a goldenrod-hued yam porridge, and kelewele is a snack of fried plantains.

In the kitchen, chefs stir pots of stew and sauce, often eschewing meat and dairy to fill Funmi’s menu with vegan options. Beneath murals of circular huts on a colorful savannah, fair-trade, organic coffee imported from Africa pours forth steam like a robot trying to understand the end of Of Mice and Men.
