Bolat African cuisine is that little blue and white brick restaurant you keep passing by on Clark, right under where the Red and Brown lines meet. You're curious, but you haven't tried it yet, because Ethiopian is hard enough to figure out. If you're willing to be adventurous, however, your curiosity will reward you.
Bolat African serves up a mixture of dishes from Nigeria and Ghana, and it's one of only two Chicago area restaurants that features food from Ghana. In all likelihood, that's great news for Bolat, but bad news for the rest of us. It isn't uncommon for this otherwise unassuming little place to be quite busy. And that should come as no surprise.
