We don’t fully understand how all of the magic that happens at the Westwood restaurant Afrikiko is contained by four walls. At this Ghanaian spot you’re taken care of with a bowl of warm water for hand-washing between dishes. There are few other places making meat pies that welcome you like a guest of honor and serve great jollof. The dishes here are exceptional—from rich, nutty banku served with fluffy fufu to groundnut soup with tilapia that makes us question if we’ve ever truly tasted tilapia before this.

Beef Meat Pies

The beef meat pies here are some of the best in Houston and a must-order dish at Afrikiko. They’re filled with seasoned beef, and the crust is so flaky and buttery that the Pillsbury Doughboy should be taking notes.

Banku With Beef And Groundnut soup

Banku here is served with a bowl of earthy groundnut soup that tastes like a savory melted peanut butter. Get beef added to your soup to scoop with the banku.

Jollof Rice

The jollof rice at Afrikiko restaurant is subtly sweet and coated in tomato. It’s pillowy soft and full of robust flavors that can stand on their own.
