Ever had a Nigerian doughnut? Neither had we until we popped into this comfortable west-side restaurant of African eats headed up by Nigerian-born chef Esther Mbaikambey. Called pof-pofs, these fun-to-say fried treats are the size of baseballs with a lightly sweet taste like a dense doughnut hole. Made to order and using simple ingredients — flour, sugar, butter, and nutmeg — Mbaikambey deep fries them into sizeable, delicious dumplings of goodness. Seriously addictive, pof-pofs can be ordered as an appetizer or dessert. Or, as Mbaikambey suggests, taken home and drizzled with honey or chocolate syrup. 'Nuff said.
