Time Out says

If you’re like us, you’ve walked by this Wrigleyville African restaurant countless times. Time to take the plunge. Start with the fried yams: crispy, starchy slices served with a trio of sauces (peanut, blackened chili and slightly spicy tomato). The three-course meal (starter, main and dessert) winds up saving you close to ten bucks compared to ordering each item individually, so splurge on the spice-rubbed rack of lamb or grilled fish in smoky pepper sauce. After one meal, you’ll no longer be curious about what’s inside—but you may have a problem walking by without stopping in.
