I reviewed Sav’s Grill & West African Cuisine in an earlier post (I loved it) and have since returned MANY times!

I thought I’d update my review just to be sure you didn’t think my first visit was a one-off.

Other favorites at Sav’s are:

  • Riz Gras:  sirloin tips with carrots, cabbage and eggplant in seasoned rice.
  • Fried Plaintains:  cooking bananas served with a tomato-onion topping.
  • Fufu:  plantain-based dumpling, “like creamy mashed potatoes.”
  • savs maskPeanut Goat:  local goat meat with tender chunky potatoes in a peanut-based vegetable broth.
  • Tiage:  tilapia and seasoned corn flour balls with tender chunky potatoes in a peanut-based vegetable broth.

Sav’s Grill & West African Cuisine is consistently excellent, with very reasonable prices.
