For a quick and satisfying lunch, stop by the local mini-chain Afro Deli for rice bowls, sandwiches, and gyros. Their Cedar-Riverside spot might feel like a fast food joint with brightly painted walls and efficient service, but the McChicken has nothing on the tender yassa chicken that’s marinated overnight in a secret spice blend. Our go-to order is a Somali sweet spiced tea with vegetable-filled sambusa served with a homemade chutney hot sauce. It’s also a great spot to take children, thanks to the dedicated kid’s menu and free soda refills.
