Notes: Sweet Handz, serving a vaste range of West African food and drinks brings a touch of Ghana in the heart of North London.
Start with a portion of traditional fried plantains seasoned with spices, to be dipped in a couple of killer hot sauces. The sweet/hot burning collateral feeling is best to be alleviated with a couple of sip of a light Ghanaian beer.
Ready for something completely different? Try Fufu, a white, sticky and chewy cassava flour big ball served alongside a tasty palm nut soup meant to be eaten with your bare hands (hence the name of the restaurant?), the unmissable Ghanaian national dish that will leave you (in this order): excited, puzzled, very satisfied.
Note to self: African Guinness is way stronger than what normally comes out the British Isles…
