Billed as a "a taste of Africa," serving native foods of Cameroon and Gambia.. In Short Native dishes such as the shrimp Creole-like shipa-shipa and the restaurant's namesake African jambalaya show links between the cuisines of West Africa and Louisiana. Others, such as ndole--spinach, ground peanuts and ginger over coconut rice--offer never-before-tasted flavors. The menu is extensive, like a journey over virgin territory and full of culinary adventure. Bennachin is popular with the takeout crowd. If you plan to sit in, be patient. Service is slow. One particular dish even requires an hour-and-a-half lead-time.
great food and great prices.
You can't find such good food for such a good price anywhere else in the French Quarter. The service was a bit slow, but it appeared to be such because there were so many people coming to pick up take-out and it seems as though only one family works there. The food is wonderful though and if I lived in town I'd eat there a minimum of once a week.
