Historically, Lakeview hasn’t been the go-to neighborhood for Nigerian food. But Comfort’s African Cuisine is a beacon of hope for anyone looking for some jollof rice and catfish pepper soup. The aforementioned jollof rice is a must-order—it’s rich and savory and comes with your choice of two meats. Stick to the juicy pieces of goat and beef versus the fish and turkey. We also like their sweet, doughy puff puff along with the sinus-clearing spicy suya. The dimly lit dining room has plenty of tables for groups, perfect for passing around a ball of fufu and scooping up herbaceous, nutty egusi.
