Finally took the opportunity to visit this PG County outpost for Kenyan cuisine that I've heard so much about. The place was hoppin' of a Sunday afternoon, packed with a lively crowd having a good time.
This is surely one of the most impressive African places in the DC area. The quality of what's on the plate was sky high. We shared the "goat wet fry" and two sides: ugali and sukuma wiki. The ugali came out as a steaming hot galette of corn mash, like what you'd expect of fufu. The sukuma wiki are vibrant, brightly green collards that had been lightly sauteed with onion.
The wet fry (that's the name on the menu) is pungent goat meat falling off the bone that was sauteed with onions and peppers. We also asked for some spicy sauce which was finely chopped hot peppers served in a small plastic cup. Quite spicy but not incendiary. Went well on the starchy ugali.
We also shared an appetizer of bhajia, which came out as fat, breaded potato chips with some spices added. Nice stuff.
This is a straight-up Chowhound delight, and the very full parking lot attests to its food.
