Say goodbye to those travel worries because Mama Africa, an African-themed pop-up restaurant, opens today on 17th Avenue.
There are several restaurant openings in Calgary to look forward to in 2022, and we can be thankful that this new venue has officially opened its doors.
Offering the chance to discover the sensations and tastes of African heritage, culture and mysteries, Mama Africa promises a diverse culinary and cultural experience.
The food and cocktails on the menu here will be inspired by all corners of Africa.
The food is delicious, from fried plantain chips served with homemade green pepper sauce and cassava dip, to the Waakye bowl inspired by the flavors of Ghana. This plate includes rice, black-eyed peas, beans, goat and tripe stew, spaghetti gari, and fried eggs.
The dishes here are unlike anything else in Calgary, in a fun and vibrant atmosphere.
Drinks served at the bar are big and bright, like the Tanzanian-inspired Ruksa cocktail, served in a beautifully painted ceramic bird.
Also expect lively events at this pop-up venue, like live music featuring the sounds of Africa and African comedy nights.
Many more events, shows, theme nights and more are sure to be announced as Mama Africa gets closer to its official opening date.
It certainly sounds like a unique and entertaining experience, so check out the highly anticipated soft opening of Mama Africa from January 20-23.
