A cultural experience like no other 2/16/2007

My wife and I were looking for a unique place to have a Friday dinner and we're so thankful we found the African Hut! Yinka, the owner/cook, and his wife run the small restaurant and they help make the experience. Both are so friendly, smiling and engaging. Yinka's laugh is infectious, satisfying the soul, while his wisdom quenches the mind. And that's on top of the wonderful African cuisine: slow-cooked the way his mother taught him back in Nigeria. For an appetizer we had a difficult time deciding between the Akara (a deep fried fritter made from black-eyed peas) and the Zanzi Fries (fried sweet yams) so after settling on the Akara we were thrilled when they brought us a healthy serving of Zanzi fries too, just to taste! And the Katanga sauce that comes with both is not to be missed. While my wife quaffed an Ethiopian Tusker beer and I sipped my merlot, we explored the list of entrees. She's a vegetarian which makes most dinner decisions a breeze: either "this one" or "that one." Not tonight. Yinka offers a seemingly endless number of meatless dishes. Meanwhile I wanted something traditional and meaty. Finally, Yinka dropped by the table to help. I was intrigued by the Fufu and Yinka supported my decision while explaining how it's eaten (with your hands, rolling tiny nuggets of dough used to scoop stew from the accompanying dish. He says with a laugh, "if you can do this without your spoon, you be okay when you travel anywhere in sub-Saharan Africa."). I settled on the Fufu with Egusi Stew. It turned out to be a hearty, meaty stew full of unique, rustic flavor. My wife chose the vegetarian platter as Yinka guided her through the decisions. She loved the Jollof Rice and Efo (stewed spinach), but the Banfi (a peanut reduction stew) was her favorite! We couldn't leave without trying Yinka's Mindinmindin for dessert. Amazing! And while we ate he freshened it up with a little Marnier poured over the top. What a treat! Thank you Yinka, we're definitely coming back! Pros: Experience, service, variety, vegetarian options, food prices reasonable Cons: Free parking difficult to find, alcohol prices a bit high more

Simply wonderful! 6/18/2004

I was visiting Milwaukee and stopped into the African Hut for dinner with a group of friends. All of the food was EXCELLENT! So good, in fact, that I'm looking forward to my next trip. A great selection of pan-African staples and delicacies. The owner/manager was just the friendliest and most hospitable restauranteur I've met in a long time. Good value. There's a part of me that wishes the decor was a little fancier, but it's quite acceptable and very clean. Delightful! Brought back fond memories of Africa without the 16 hour plane trip. Pros: Food! Tastes great!, Variety, Service/hospitality more

Pepper soup to start 7/23/2002

and then just enjoy anything on the menu. Outside, a door in downtown Milwaukee but inside, a taste and a taste and a taste of Africa. Authentically run by authentic Africans, they know how to cook. Really casual atmosphere (hey, I said authentic) that only enhances the great food. Try the pepper soup--it is HOT and delicious. Sweet potato fries, oh yeah! Hey, don't wait for more suggestions; just go there and love what you have. The rating is not for Tie Required. You'll know why it gets a 10 once you try this place. more

  • The Scene
    This charming cafe is yet another delicious link in the multicultural food chain of downtown Milwaukee's Old World Third Street. Take a seat in the casual cafe or settle into the Zanzi-Bar for a couple of cocktails.

    The Food
    Any of the slow-cooked stews are delicious, including spinach, peanut or egusi, made from crushed melon seeds. The akara, a delicious hand-crafted fritter fashioned from black-eyed peas, is not to be missed. For dessert indulge in the excellent sweet potato pie or mindy-mindy, a double-decker ice cream sundae smothered with Grand Marnier-simmered fresh apples and molasses. African beer and wine are available to top off a fine meal served with gracious hospitality.
