People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with African eats at Mawa's Taste of Africa in Morrisville. Mawa's gargantuan menu offers a taste bud tour of Africa, embarking diners on a flavorful journey from Eqypt to South Africa. Hang a fang on an order of Yebeg Alicha($18) featuring lamb stewed in a mild sauce, or indulge in vegetarian victuals with the spicy Kenyan curry ($8) served over a thick potato paste, rice, or couscous (full menu with prices here).
- I love the food at Mawa. DB (grilled lamb) is my personal favorite, the lentil soup rocks as well. – Morrisville R., Insider Pages
Yagg Si Tenn Catering
The chefs at Yagg Si Tenn Catering hail from Senegal—a West African country where vendors peddle tropical fruits in bustling marketplaces and fishermen pluck fresh fish from the bountiful sea. When they arrived on North Carolina soil, the chefs brought with them a wealth of traditional African recipes as well as a deep appreciation for good food and family. Today, they distribute housemade dishes from Senegal and other African countries throughout North Carolina.
Deep in the Yagg Si Tenn kitchen, the chefs fold fresh ingredients and authentic spices into complex dishes—from spicy grilled chicken yassa to flavorful jollof rice. They also bottle their recipes in the form of housemade traditional sauces, such as the fresh roasted-habanero Kani spread and the garlic-and-lemon vinaigrette. The culinary crew has served these freshly made African specialties at weddings, large parties, and odd incidences when everyone in town is inexplicably drawn to the same abandoned factory in the middle of the night.
