Come to Jollof Rice King in Upper Kirby on a mission to stuff as much of the smoky, spiced jollof into your body as is physically possible. The spice from the suya skewers might turn your meal into mission impossible, but any of the malt drinks will help finish the job. The space is mostly just a counter with a few tables on the side. But the food here, especially the jollof and the suya, is why this place has crowned itself king.
While the beef suya at Jollof Rice King is technically an appetizer, it could be its own meal. It’s served with a heap of smoky jollof rice and the suya is covered in crisp onions and doused in suya spice.
The meat pies are a staple appetizer at Jollof Rice King. And while we love the flaky crust, the filling leaves much to be desired, so feel free to skip these.
Jollof Rice Plate
Jollof rice plates here are served with fried plantains, greens, and a choice of meat. We like to get the oxtail because it comes with a spicy tomato soup that we want to pour over everything.
