We love sitting at Mokili’s counter watching the cheery chef up close, sipping a bright ginger juice, and snacking on Ghanaian fried plantains. The seasonal menu at this counter-service spot has a special way with jollof rice, grilled beef suya on a stick, and cornish hen in peanut-laced mafé or stewed with bright preserved lemon in tajine. Come here for lunch, a light afternoon and early evening meal, or for a summertime picnic meal to take to Jarry Park. There are also some African products in the shop to take home, including their own spicy pili-pili sauce, Kenyan herb teas, Nigerian grains, and vegan chocolate.
