Afri Restaurant @ Casa Tropicana

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.

  3. Oh, I've never had African cuisine...food must be good and authentic since I can see their countrymen dining there. Hmmm, 30 seems to be a favourite number of theirs! ^_~

  5. I have eaten African food in KL several times! I love their variety from different countries as their continent is huge. There used to be a popular Out Of Africa at PJ State area. I must check out this place.

    1. Twilight Man: oh yes, i forgot about out of africa ... though i'd probably classify that as very different from other african outlets. that's true, there are lots of differences between different african countries, just like how there are differences just within southeast asia ;)
