Max’s Mukhaase is a family-run restaurant in Mesa specializing in the hearty, wholesome fare of west Africa, with special emphasis on traditional Ghanaian dishes. Most dishes on the menu are well-balanced with a starch, protein and veggies. You’ll find traditional starches like banku, which is made from fermented corn and cassava, which is served alongside an excellent okra stew. There’s also fufu, a stretchy, starchy mound of fermented dough that is immersed in a light, tomato goat stew. The goat, judging from the way the meat slides right off the bone, is slowly simmered for hours, and the fufu acts as kind of a sponge, nicely soaking up the garlicky and herbaceous broth.
