West Africans like their meat chewy, and fredid is coming around to their way of thinking. At Papaye in the Bronx, the stewed goat that comes with palaver sauce, the Ghanian stew of greens and egusi (ground squash seed), is "gamy and great!" This luncheonette, the older of two Papayes in a small Ghanian enclave, is a friendly joint, but the illustrated menu is short on explanation. fredid suggests that those new to the cuisine might want to read up a bit before dropping by.
