Westword's Description

In the late 2000s, Osei Ford-Wuo and his wife, Adwoa, started selling West African food from a van they'd named African Grill, running deliveries and offering special orders. By the summer of 2010, they'd saved up enough money to pick up an Aurora strip-mall address, refurbishing it as a hut-themed oasis with thatched straw walls decorated with dried flowers. The couple created a true family restaurant in the space, and their own family is often here: Their adorable child makes occasional guest appearances, serving up a grin as warm as Osei and Adwoa's ebullient greetings. And after doling out drinks and advice on food (the foreign words shellacked to tables and the grainy three-part menu can be hard to decipher), they retreat to the kitchen, where they can be heard, though not seen, preparing each dish: mixing plantains, tomatoes, goat meat, cassava and peanut butter into moimoi, jollof rice and fufu. They also happen to make some of the best fried chicken in town.
