With a half-hour to kill in the Trumbull, Connecticut mall — whose food court is surrounded by the grim likes of McDonald's, Blimpie, Taco Bell, Arthur Treacher's/Nathan's, Dunkin' Donuts, Ranch 1, Sbarro, and Cinnabon — I found myself inside a well-known athletic apparel store. After one of the employees made a better-than-average, but unsuccessful, sales pitch, we got to talking. He's of Nigerian descent, and I asked him if there were any Nigerian restaurants nearby. No, he said, there's a couple of African markets in Bridgeport, though there's also a "soul food" restaurant that has some African influences. He couldn't remember the name, but he added that it's downtown, and that that area of Bridgeport isn't very large.
Anyone know any more?
