Fodor's Expert Review Jambo

$ South Side African

Ahmed Obo, the Kenyan-born owner who's been in Santa Fe for years, applies great skill and enthusiasm to the Afro-Caribbean food he loves at this casual, homey eatery in a shopping center a couple of miles south of the Plaza. Flavors of coconut, peanuts, and curry influence everything from shrimp to goat stew. Vegetarian choices like the coconut lentil stew are rich and comforting. World-beat music, African art, and the friendly waiters—who will happily mention their favorite dishes—add to the appeal.
