Description

Village Voice's Description

The leaf-based sauces of Guinea are indeed thrilling, like what Popeye shot into his mouth, only better. Whether made with sweet-potato leaves, spinach, or manioc foliage at Fatima, these stockfish-accented sauces provide verdant and pungent moisture for the huge plate of Uncle Ben's that's the focus of an African meal. Or go bright orange with chicken in palm oil sauce.

    If you really want to go green, we recommend the leaf-based sauces at Crown Heights's Fatima, a chill restaurant where entrees begin with a Kilimanjaro of polished rice, over which is poured a lamb-dotted sauce de feuilles made with sweet-potato leaves.
