Grab a quick bite at Suya Suya West African Grill in Philly's NoLibs
I was itching for some takeout this week and have been wanting to visit Suya Suya since it opened last year.
- Philadelphia has no shortage of fantastic West African food, especially in West Philly, but I ventured to Northern Liberties to try the spot myself.
How it works: The menu is simple, and while there are other options, the restaurant's main draw is the bowls.
- Choose a protein (steak, chicken, shrimp or Brussels sprouts), a base (uto, jollof, vegan jollof or okoko baked rice) and a side (cornbread or plantains).
What I ordered: Steak Suya Bowl with jollof rice, white Suya sauce, a side salad and a side of plantains. I opted for medium spice.
- The steak was fantastic — perfectly seasoned.
- I would order the plantains on their own to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Yes, but: The standout is the jollof rice, cooked with tomatoes, onions, meat, vegetables and spices.
The bottom line: This is the spot for a quick bite that won't disappoint and will leave you full.
Visit: 400 Fairmount Ave. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 11:30am to 8pm.
