At last, at last. If I could sing a love song in Nigerian, I would. I have been looking for Nigerian food for ages, and Kuramo delivers. Different flavors of fufu (the pounded yam is my favorite), dodo (plantains) and dipping sauces - with spinach, meat (can be left out if you're veg) and a red sauce that is like liquid cayenne - tasty if exceedingly spicy - all brought me back to the first time I ever had this cuisine, in a wee hole-in-the-wall in Ireland, of all places.
The space is large, great for groups, and there is a small stage for musicians. It's somewhat dark but there are lights at each table, so seeing menus (and signing) is not a problem. However, they have both music and the TV going at the same time, so it's a bit loud in there.
If you opt to eat your dinner with your hands instead of utensils, you don't automatically get a napkin, which you find you will need a few of. I do wish they would come around and refill water glasses more often (especially because of that red sauce), or ask if you need anything, because the servers were absent through much of our meal. Also - most of the beverages do not come with free refills.
I also wish they had vegan meat substitutes, which I realize is not African in nature as you wouldn't go on a safari hunting for wild tofu, but the name Kuramo comes from a beach in Portugal, so who's kvetching?
All I know is their food is stellar and I look forward to many more meals there.
