Africa Kine serves most of its meat dishes without a knife, and for good reason. Lamb falls off the bone as you lift it from the pool of slightly spicy mafe sauce, and when you poke the peppery, smoky chicken yassa - our favorite dish here - with a spoon, the meat shreds into the mix of onions, olives, and citrusy sauce. There’s no seating in the small dining room at the moment, so place an order at the takeout window in the hallway, and bring it a short walk away to a bench in St. Nicholas park.
