Afri Restaurant @ Casa Tropicana
September 24, 2017
Point & Kill is one of Afri's specialities - it's a popular Nigerian recipe that takes its name literally; choose one of the live catfishes in the restaurant's aquarium & it'll be caught & slaughtered in the kitchen to make a memorably smooth catfish pepper soup, a savoury broth that's rich with some unique flavours of African herbs & spices. RM30 per kilogram of fish.
Afri's Nigerian chef takes pride in plenty of other temptations too - try the tender boiled yam with a very tasty stew of eggplant, crayfish, fried fish & dried prawns (RM30). If you like offal, the hot & hearty pepper soup with beef liver, tripe & intestines should make you pretty happy (RM30); wash down with Orijin, a medicinal-tasting Nigerian liquor (RM30).
We've seen more than a few African restaurants come & go in the Klang Valley over the past decade, but Afri could be the best one so far. Head here if you're willing to stretch past your comfort zone & explore new cuisines.
