Time Out says

African restaurants are well-known for their leisurely pace, but here the mother-and-son team behind Bolat goes the opposite route: Customers place their orders at a counter and watch as their food goes from steam table to plate in a matter of minutes. Technically, that makes this stuff fast food, but the flavors are clearly the result of slow cooking. Goat meat has seemingly endless layers of hot and mild peppers; peanut soup has that nut’s savory edge but also a peppery bite; and jerk chicken is cloaked in a sauce redolent of cardamom and cloves.
