With dishes inspired by various regions throughout the African continent, Pan Africa Restaurant & Bar's prix fixe menu engages dining duos in a gastronomic journey of authentic appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Prep palates for spiced savories with two starters such as piquant piri piri prawns and lamb kebabs or veggie sambusa and a spicy tuna roll. Inspired by the cardinal directions, entrees such as the East Combo—with injera, tuna kitfo, beef tibs, doro wott, and veggies—mark tongue passports with a regional stamp. Tailored to omnivorous or vegan inclinations, each two-person platter reflects local culinary traditions, from the West Combo's curried goat, chicken yassa, and fish groundnut stew to the South Vegetarian Combo's tofu mesala, zucchini cakes, greens in peanut sauce, and curried corn. Couples can pick two desserts from the trio of options, including mango cobbler and a sacchariferous dish that features coconut, bananas, and cardamom mangoes wrestling in chilled rice pudding.
At Pan Africa Restaurant's West Seattle location, the regular menu continues the palatable pilgrimage through Africa, as north, west, and south veggie combos ($12.50 each) mix and match everything from red lentils and yellow peas to pineapple salad, cabbage, and groundnut. Otherwise, goat cutlets slowly simmer in a house curry ($14) before soaking into a bed of rice, and either chicken ($13.25) or fish ($14) slowly cooks in harissa—a North African chili sauce spiced with red peppers and the lingering tension from Casablanca's central romance.
