“A small piece of Africa in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

A former Camerunese football player that decides to settle in Buenos Aires and opens an african food's "resto"? Sounds weird, but it's true. Maxime is in the kitchen preparing such traditional dishes like roti, bobotie, DG and grilled whole fish (delicious). Big portions and great value for your money. The place may be small, but the heart is really big! Don't miss the "frito de porotos" (fried beans).

“Great alternative to meat in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Whoever has been to Buenos Aires knows that they have great meat and wine. But after eating beef night after night, you might want eat something different for a change. And what a change it is! Small typical african restaurant with great food. You won't find better in Africa. The chef is from Cameron. Don't miss the fried yuca (mandioca) and the grilled whole fish. Expect humble set up and limited choice on wine, though good quality.
