Singled out by the Cary Citizen for its mouthwatering combinations of flavor and atmosphere, the menu at Mawa’s Taste of Africa plucks meat and vegan dishes from every corner of its namesake continent. Vegan diners select from their own section, which includes the senegalese yassa, a grilled portobello mushroom doused with a fiery onion sauce ($13). Hailing from Kenya, sweet-and-spicy mbuzi curry sauce cascades over juicy morsels of goat meat ($14). Moroccan kitchens inspire the lamb tagine ($17), steeped in more honey sauce than Winnie the Pooh after a breakup and tossed with dates, prunes, olives and veggies onto a bed of couscous. The popular mbourou faas ($5.50) ends meals in traditional fashion with a dessert of golden-brown brioche, ice cream, and banana caramel. Convivial parties can congregate in Mawa’s comfy booths or opt to perch atop mats embellished with animal prints.
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.
