Time Out says

Safari isn’t just the only Somali restaurant in Harlem—it’s the only one in all five boroughs. Start off with an appetizer of sambuza, a pocket of flaky dough filled with beef or chicken ($8 for two). Those who have never tried Somali food before might want to order the popular hilib ari, roasted goat served with basmati rice ($18), or chicken suqaar, a spicy stew served with chapatti bread ($15). The slow-cooked mango curry chicken served with a side of biryani ($16) is another customer favorite. Save room for malab iyo malawax, crepes drizzled with honey and dusted with sugar ($6). White grapefruit juice ($4) or Somali coffee infused with ginger ($3) complement the meal.
